Badging

Badging at SJT is required for all persons who access the air operations area (AOA) without escort. 

The application office is open on Tuesday’s and Friday’s from 8:30 AM to 11:30 AM and then 1:30 PM to 4:30 PM.

Badges can be issued for General Aviation tenants, and for commercial tenants who require Security Identification Display Area (SIDA) access.  Process are similar for both but require the following:

General Aviation:

  • Complete a Badge Application packet (except for page 7) 
  • Provide 2 forms of identification found on page 8 (typically a Social Security Card and a Passport or Driver's License). 
    • Note 1 - If you were born outside of the United States, you are required to produce a valid US passport.
    • Note 2 - If you will be driving a vehicle (even on a ramp), you are required to produce a valid US Driver's License
    • Note 3 - For a GA badge, you are NOT required to produce a Social Security Card, but not doing so can delay you application process.
  • Successfully Pass a "Security Threat Assessment" (based upon application and ID documents provided).

SIDA Access:

  • Complete a Badge Application packet (except for page 7) 
  • Provide 2 forms of identification found on page 8 (typically a Social Security Card and a Passport or Driver's License). 
    • Note 1 - If you were born outside of the United States, you are required to produce a valid US passport.
    • Note 2 - If you will be driving a vehicle (even on a ramp), you are required to produce a valid US Driver's License
    • Note 3 - A Social Security Card IS required for your SIDA badge access.
  • Successfully pass a "Security Threat Assessment" (based upon application and ID documents provided).
  • Successfully pass a "Criminal History Records Check" (based upon collection of your fingerprints and submission to the FBI's database).
  • Schedule a SIDA Training Class.
  • Successfully complete a SIDA training class. 

The access card is the property of the City of San Angelo and failure to return that once you decide it is no longer going to be used could result in a $100.00 fine.

 

Movement Area Driver Training

If you are a current badge holder, or have applied to be a badge holder at SJT, AND you will need access to portions of the airfield as part of your job duties, you will need to complete movement area driver training.  Our initial movement area driver training consists of reviewing our movement area driver training packet, completing a computer based training module, and successfully completing a practical airfield driving exam.  Please contact Shaun Cookson for more information regarding the SJT movement area driver training program.

SJT does not require badge holders to complete driver training UNLESS they have an operational need to access the movement area. Please click the link below to download a copy of the movement area driver training packet.
