Airport Access Card

Air Operations Area ID Badging Procedure

IMPORTANT – PLEASE READ THIS ENTIRE PAGE

Due to the low volume of badges now issued, please call (701) 241-1501 to make an appointment.

Effective June 1, 2009, the Transportation Security Administration has implemented security procedures for all commercial service airports in the United States. Any individual with unescorted access privileges must get an ID badge to access the Air Operations Area (AOA) via the vehicle gates, turnstiles or through a building adjacent the AOA (old terminal and/or hangar).

If you are a hangar owner/operator on the Airport, you may get an AOA ID badge. If you are not, you will need a sponsor (current hangar owner or leaseholder) to sign for you.

  • Bring a passport (list A) or two forms of identification as listed below (list B and C).
  • A security threat assessment (STA) will be completed before issuing the ID badge. This process may take up to 7 days.
  • There will be a $20 (cash or check only) non-refundable fee for the initial picture ID badge.

Per TSA security requirements, the AOA ID badge must be reactivated each year within 30 days before your birthday and be reissued every two years with an extra $10 charge (subject to change).

At renewal, you will need to return your expired AOA ID badge to be issued a new one. If the old badge is not returned, you will be charged the $100 lost ID fee.

REMINDERS FOR REACTIVATION OR RENEWAL WILL NOT MAILED OUT.

A $100 FEE IS CHARGED FOR A LOST OR NOT RETURNED ID BADGE.

IF MORE THAN 5% OF ALL ISSUED ID BADGES ARE UNACCOUNTED FOR ANNUALLY, ALL ID BADGES MUST BE REISSUED AND INCUR AN ADDITIONAL CHARGE.
