New Badges

Transportation Security Administration (TSA) regulations require the FNL Airport to badge individuals who have un-escorted access to the Airport Operating Area (AOA). The AOA is defined as any portion of the Airport where aircraft take off, land, taxi, or are hangared. All NEW badges (not renewals), will need to complete and provide the following:

  • Badge Application
  • Read the AOA Training Manual
  • Ensure you bring the proper ID (i.e. Social Security Card if using your Driver’s License as Photo ID, however an active passport is preferable, copies WILL NOT suffice)

*NOTE* Flight school & other on-airport business employees, flight school students, and Civil Air Patrol members MUST have their applications signed by their organization’s authorized signatory PRIOR to bringing their applications to the Airport.

Badge Renewals

No application is needed to renew. Renewals in 2020 will need to complete the updated training and badge receipt & agreement form. Please bring your badge to the Airport Administration office, pay the fee, update/verify your information, and sign a new badge receipt & agreement form. Badge Renewal begins Monday, August 31, 2020. Office hours are 8:00 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. Monday thru Friday in Fire Station 4 (4900 Earhart Road Loveland).

The grace period for renewing expired badges is ONLY 30 days after the expiration date (10/31/20). If the badge is not renewed within the 30 day grace period the badge records will be purged and the application process will need to be completed from the beginning, the old prox card will also need to be brought in to avoid the $25 lost badge fee. 

In an effort to reduce exposure please bring your own pen to sign the new Badge Receipt & Agreement form; alternatively you may sign it electronically and return the completed agreement to Each badge holder must sign a new Badge Receipt & Agreement you may not have a proxy sign on your behalf.

Badge Fees

Badges are $15. The fee to replace a lost or stolen badge is $25.

Acceptable forms of payment include credit/debit card or check:

Badge Communications

For your convenience, courtesy reminders are emailed for renewals. However, please remember it is your responsibility to renew your badge if you wish to maintain your access to the Airport. Courtesy reminders are emailed in order to reduce costs for Airport users. Badging costs due to TSA requirements encompass background checks, materials, training, equipment, and countless administrative hours. Current badging fees do not cover the minimum costs related to badging. Airport users can help keep fees down by ensuring compliance with badging requirements.

If you miss the deadline for renewal, which is also printed on the face of your badge, your badge will be turned off on the expiration date. After a one (1) month grace period you will need to restart the application process. Thank you for your assistance to keep the Airport compliant with Federal requirements!
