Paine Field Airport Badging Requirements.

BEFA members flying out of Paine Field are required to have an airport issued badge.  Only badge holders are allowed access to property within the security fence referred to as Air Operations Area (AOA) or “airside”.

Obtaining a Badge

To begin the process, become informed by reading the following linked Paine Field documents:
