Transportation Security Administration (TSA) regulations require the control and management of access to the Airport. The area under restricted access is referred to as the Airport Operations Area or AOA and is defined as any portion of the Airport where aircraft take off, land, taxi, or are stored.

Badge Communications

For your convenience, courtesy reminders are emailed for renewals. However, please remember it is your responsibility to renew your badge before the end of the grace period if you wish to maintain your access to the Airport. Electronic communications are used 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 materials and badge administration. 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 from the start.

Thank you for your assistance to keep the Airport compliant with Federal requirements!
