Airport Access ID Badging Information
The Airport Security office issues Airport Access ID Badges for individuals requiring “regular and routine” access to the Airport Operations Area (AOA), Security Identification Display Area (SIDA), and restricted areas of the airport. The office is located in the passenger terminal, across from Hertz Car Rentals.
New Badge Applicants
In accordance with the Airport Security Plan and TSA regulations, all individuals who require “regular and routine” access to the Airport Operations Area (AOA) must apply for and obtain an Airport ID Badge. The information provided in the application is submitted to the Transportation Security Clearinghouse (TSC). TSC completes a Security Threat Assessment and makes a determination on the applicant’s eligibility for a badge. In addition, all Airport ID Badge applicants must read the Airport Security and Vehicle Operator Training Manual and complete the Non-Movement Area Vehicle Operator Exam and the Basic Airport Security Exam.
Complete these steps to apply for the airport access badge needed. All applicants must read the training manual provided below.

It is important to note that if your badge is expired, your access is automatically deactivate, you must re-apply for a new badge, and you may be subject to a financial penalty.
Lost, Stolen, or Broken Airport ID Badges
If your badge has been lost, stolen, or broken, the Airport ID Badge Replacement form will need to be filled out prior to a new ID badge being issued.
All Airport ID Badges remain the property of Pangborn Memorial Airport and must be returned to the airport when no longer needed.

All returned badges should be accompanied by an Airport ID Badge Cancellation form. Failure to promptly return an Airport ID Badge may result in penalties or additional fees.
