2013 Badge Re-Issue information


Due to security regulations, the Midland International Airport will begin issuing the next series of badges on September 1, 2013. Each badge holder must complete a new Airport Security Identification Badge Application, two valid forms of I.D, and submit the application along with a $5.00 renewal fee to Airport Operations. It is imperative that all badges are surrendered to Airport Operations and reissued no later than October 31, 2013. At midnight on October 31, 2013 all “M” series badges will be deactivated. The new ‘J’ series paperwork will be available beginning September 1, 2013 at or inside the Airport Operations Office on the third floor of the Terminal Building. Older series paperwork will not be accepted for a badge renewal.

In addition, a new Security Agreement will be required for each company/private pilot operating at Midland International Airport prior to any badge issuance. New regulations require all individuals that are to be authorized signers for a company to complete additional yearly training specific to their position as an Authorized Signer. Those that have not completed this training prior to signing for new badges will cause those individuals seeking renewal to be refused. This training will be held every Thursday at 11AM and 8PM in the Airport Operations office.

If you have any questions pertaining to this matter, please feel free to contact Airport Operations at 432-560-2200, extension 3006.


Frequently Asked Questions

What do I need to provide to renew my Badge?

What ID’s do I need to provide for the renewal?

 Two types of valid identification must be provided from the list of acceptable ID’s provided in the complete fingerprinting and badge application paperwork. If you have questions regarding what ID’s are accepted, please contact the Airport Operations Office.

Am I required to renew my badge if it was recently issued?

 Yes. If your badge is a ‘M’ series and was issued at any time prior to September 1, 2013, it will have to be renewed.
