Illegal License Plate Frame
As I mentioned in a note hand-carried to the cafeteria upstairs to give to Mike Wolff or Hal, the license plate frame is not legal in Oregon and probably many other states since the lower wording blocks the registration month and year. You have no other frame. Not good.

screw hole right where a letter should be
The 'Y' in "I'd rather be flying" is missing because there is a screw hole right on the letter. Distracts from the "good feel" displaying this on your car.

Easy to read.
As the old saying goes, it stands out like an outhouse in the fog. Both the blue and the white colors are brilliant, spacing of letters just right. Proud to have it on my vehicle.

Not as displayed/Advertised
Received the "I'd Rather Be Flying" license plate holder by USPS as scheduled. The tag holder is Not as displayed/advertised. The tag holder now has 4 holes with the "Y" in Flying partially missing. Called customer service to see if any of the old stock was left- No.

One of the nicer license plate frames
This frame with its "I'd rather be flying" message has been around a long time. The font that is used for that phrase is great. The letters are raised, embossed, and painted a nice blue which makes it nice too. However, what I don't like about it is the additional message at the top to fly safe. It is in a different font. Now, it is not that I don't agree that we should fly safe. It's just not the message I'm trying to get across when I'm putting a flying license plate frame on my car. That part just shouldn't be on there. My intention is to passively let my interest in flying be know, not to be a parent and tell everybody to fly safe. Most of the audience is an even a pilot. The same license plate holder back in the 80s just had a wings logo on the top portion that looked a lot cooler. The difference made me debate whether I should even get the plate holder or not. I got it because it's the best one on the market in terms of quality, but I intend to see what I can do to change the top part myself. Get rid of the "Fly safely" statement and replace it with a cool flying motif if the makers would like to sell more of these.

Show your love of flying
Overall I am very pleased with the frame. I bought this because I am a RC pilot who goes through withdrawal when I can't fly at least once a week. The frame is sturdy and the chrome appears to be fairly thick. I did not realize that the frame would partially cover the date and county stickers on the bottom edge of the license plate. That is the only reason I could not give it 5 stars.
