What authority does a SIDA badge have outside of your home airport?

Zero, Zip. Nada. It’s only good at the airport of issue. If you get caught on an other airport with that badge and without their issued ID or an escort you are in serious-serious trouble. Now I have had a SIDA badge help me get a temp pass at an airport. I was chashing a damaged airplane and when I stopped by the Ops Office they issued me a temp pass based off my other Sida badge. It was only good for a week and only within 100ft of my aircraft.

What authority does a SIDA badge have outside of your home airport? I’ve heard people say it’s useless at other airports and I know of others who have used their SIDA badge to get onto other airport ramps.

That wasn’t his question. He inquired about SIDA badges, not employee ID ‘s.

Also I’ve noticed that F/As tend to give you top service if they know you’re an airline employee, yes this is borderline breaking the #1 non-rev law, don’t disclose your company affiliation.

Flight attendants are made aware of employees onboard via the passenger manifest. You don’t have to tell them. as long as you sit in your assigned seat, they arleady know.

SIDA badges are only good as a form of Government Issued Photo ID .

My SIDA badge came in handy when I had to go get a replacement drivers license a few years back when I thought I had lost mine (the bank forgot to put in back into the tube in the drive thru teller line).

Agreed, maybe we should not mention the planes cockpit is located in the front of the aircraft.

Is it really that smart of us to be talking about SIDA priveledges and how you can use them to get through security checkpoints and such?

Absolutely Not. The only thing that I will say is that the whole system sucks! There is no standard between airports. One airport may choose green another may choose red or blue for SIDA Access.

It is hardly paranoia, rather it is following protocol. Anyone who has been through a boring SIDA or AOA class knows that one of the points that is made is not to discuss security measures with anyone who doesn’t need to know. While the majority in this thread may already know that, who knows about the lurkers who may be reading this forum. It is hardly Paranoia to use common sense.

It’s because the badges are airport specific and makes it much easier to spot those who are not supposed to have SIDA/AOA access at your home airport. You should be able to recognize the different types of badges your airport issues. If someone doesn’t have the one of them, it should be automatic that you go up to them and challenge them. People are very visual and it would be a lot easier to spot someone if you can just glance at their badge to see if they belong there or not. The easiest way to do this is for every airport to have the ability to choose their own color and layout for their badges.
