Badge Process

Step 1: Application

  2. Complete sections 1, 3, 4 and 5 of the application. Do not fill in any other boxes.

  3. Have the form signed by an authorized signer / Hangar owner or business sponsor. 

Step 2: Background Check/ Identification Documents

For AOA / SIDA Access Badges:  Every badge type requires a Security Threat Assessment (STA). Information on the airport application will be submitted to the Dept. of Homeland Security (DHS). DHS will perform a background check and we should have the results in 5-7 days. Foreign born or non-US citizen may take longer. Step 2 must be completed before the badging process can continue. 

For SIDA Access Badges:  Fingerprinting is required, the Badging office will provide you with the fingerprinting card and address for where you will be fingerprinted. Fingerprinting is performed by the Ogden Police Dept.. You must make an appointment with the Ogden Police Dept to be fingerprinted. A Warrant/Felony check will be performed on your name and social security number.  If you have outstanding issues, you will need to meet with the Ogden Airport Manager. The Airport Manager will decide on a case by case situation if you can continue the badge process.

All applicants must provide UNEXPIRED, ORIGINAL ISSUED PAPER identification documents that show proof of identity and eligibility to work in the United States. (Photos or copies of the required documents are not acceptable) Passport OR Driver’s License and Original Birth Certificate OR Driver’s License and Original Social Security Card are the best forms of identification for each applicant. Reference the last page of the badge application (Form I-9) for clarification of acceptable documents.

Make sure you bring your sponsor signed application and 2 forms of identification into the Airport Badging Office with you when submitting your application.  

When submitting your initial application an appointment will be made once you bring in your application and documents are verified.  

Original documents will only be accepted.  COPIES (PAPER OR PHOTOS) are not accepted.  

An appointment is not needed to turn your application in.  Reminder Badging Office hours are between 9:00 a.m. and 4: 00 p.m.  Closed for Lunch 12 p.m. - 1 p.m.

Once application is verified, and information reviewed.  An appointment will then be scheduled 4-5 days out for TSA clearance to be given


Step 3:  TSA Training / Badging

  1. TSA Badge training is by appointment only and takes an hour.   Be on time.   If you are 15 minutes late or more, you will be rescheduled for a later date. 
  2. TSA badge training must be completed within 30 days of your background check or application submittal.  Once that 30 day window expires, your application will be removed from the process, you will be required to resubmit your application, and pay the fees for processing a new application.
  3. Upon successful completion of the required TSA training and security checks, your AOA badge will be issued.  For SIDA badges, one will be issued as soon as your Criminal History Records Check (CHRC) results are given a PASS.
