Does anyone know where to obtain the "Air Crew" ID/security badges? They all appear to be from either NATA or NBAA although I have looked on both websites and found nothing. Are they for 135 only? Thanks for your help.

I've thought about ordering them from IBAC or NATA, but I'm waiting to see how this whole LASP nonsense shakes out first...

you sure you really want to display to the world that you are "crew"? at our place they are frowned on big time.

If you have an account with Universial, they provide ICAO type ID bages. Not sure about COLT.

IBAC, Universal, Air Routing, they all have a badge you can get if you are willing to pay. I think I have them all, I have never used them for anything.

They're virtually a necessity outside of the U.S. Never understood why, you could make one on your home computer and have it laminated...

What do you do overseas, the few times that I have been to Asia, and Europe with the new company they seemed almost mandatory. We do have them, but they stay on the airplane for when we are out of the country.

that is precisely where you don't want them. you want to do anything you can so as to not be easily recognized as an American. Big Blue Flight Safety Tags in English that say CREW on them are a dead give away.

i don't understand what you mean when you ask "what do you do overseas?" we go all over the world with no issues. We try not to stand out. We wear no uniforms, no crew tags. all wear different clothes. different ties etc. no badges until we need to show them at the airport. simple things.

Amen bruther- don't stick out. Anything that can be done to stay off of the radar is mandatory. Crew tags, uniforms, etc. Don't look like a pilot and blend in. Stealth.

Thats what I am saying, you do have them then? You just show them when you need to. We do the same thing, we have the I.D.s but they dont come out till we have to take them out, I thought that by your post you meant that you guys just did not have them.

Thanks all for the info and help. I have been asked at several large FBO's for ID in order to access the ramp thats why I ask. I found it interesting as we are a 91 flight department and just don't have one other that what is needed to get into our corporate office. Any other 91 operators have this issue? All the locations that have asked are in the US.

Thanks again for all the help

I thought the U.S. was the only country that hates pilots.:)

Hey Geo,

If you're based at an airport that has airline service, I'd wait a few months, because you're gonna need a badge from your local airport as of June 1 per SD-1542-04-08f.
