Transportation Security Administration Regulations
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.
For a NEW badge (not renewal), you will need to complete and provide the following:
- Badge Application
- 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)
- Read the Non-Movement Driver’s Training Manual
- Take and pass the Non-Movement Drivers Test
Badge Fees & Requirements
New and renewed badges have a $20 fee.
The fee to replace a lost or stolen badge is $25.
Renewals are every other year in October based on Federal requirements and not the date individuals have applied for their personal badge. The next renewal year is 2017.
Non-renewal years are a required visual audit year and are due by October. Which means, when we email you for that year’s visual audit, you must physically come to the Airport administrative office to verify your badge remains in your possession, no fees are associated with the visual audit. The next visual audit year is 2018.
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. Please note, the 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 one (1) month after the expiration date.
After three (3) months the Airport is required to purge our records which would require badge holders who have missed the deadline to restart their application process.
Thank you for your assistance to keep the Airport compliant with Federal requirements!
