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 WITH Non-Movement Area Driver’s Test
- Read the Non-Movement Driver’s 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 employees, Airport business employees, and Civil Air Patrol members MUST have their applications signed by their authorized signatory on page 2 of their application PRIOR to bringing the application in to the Airport.
Badge Fees & Requirements
Badges are $15. The fee to replace a lost or stolen badge is $30. Renewals occur annually in October. Due to requirements badges must now be renewed annually.
Acceptable forms of payment include credit/debit card or check:
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 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!
