Paine Field Airport badging requirements
Paine Field Airport has updated badging procedures to meet federal requirements. These changes affect all badge holders needing access to the airport operations areas. Masks are required for all badging appointments.
For initial badging of Hangar Tenants and AOA badge holders:
- Complete the AOA GA badge Application.
- Complete the Authorized Signatory test. You will become your own Authorized Signatory. Being your own Authorized Signatory means that you are responsible for your AOA badge and the renewal of your AOA badge.
- Complete the TSA form – requires signature and date.
- Bring your I-9 documents. You must provide originals at your appointment and we will make copies of them for our files. We do not accept any expired documents. You either need something from List A (i.e. Passport or Passport Card) OR something from List B AND List C (i.e. Driver’s License and Social Security Card or Driver’s License and Birth Certificate, etc.). We do not accept TWIC, NEXUS, Global Entry or any other government issued cards.
