Airport Badging

Obtaining a Badge

The Grand Forks International Airport issues security badges to airport employees, hangar tenants, and others who need access to the secured areas of the airport. There are four basic steps to obtaining a badge:

  1. An Authorized Signatory (i.e., your employer, hangar lessor) authorizes you to make your first badging appointment.
  2. At your first appointment, the badging office collects enough information from you for the TSA to perform a security threat assessment (STA); and depending on your authorization, they may take your fingerprints for a background check through the FBI.
  3. Once you've been cleared to obtain a badge, you will be emailed links to online videos with quizzes to train you on your responsibilities as a GFK Airport badge holder.
  4. After successfully completing your training, you make your second appointment at the badging office to receive your badge.
