PRINT      Once you complete the online form it will download necessary documents and step-by-step instructions. These are simple maps and instructions, and the TSA form you will need.
FOLLOW     Downloaded step-by-step instructions. Itís really rather easy.
  Get fingerprinted at DCA or Potomacís own pilot shop
WRAP UP    Once you have completed the instructions, Fax the downloaded TSA form to authorize TSA to process your clearance.

!!! NOTHING HAPPENS UNTIL YOU FAX THIS FORM TO TSA !!!

WAIT       To be contacted about your clearance by email. Feel free to call me as well. Usually within two weeks of completed submission, toward end of week, depending on TSA. Look for little gray cars at a discrete distance, and noise on your phone line.

STEP FOUR:  APPLY FOR CLEARANCE

APPLICATION AND PRIVACY WAIVER

I hereby voluntarily submit and apply for clearance to the Potomac Airfield, a privately owned facility whose owner can be arbitrary and capricious at times such as this, but who is otherwise a nice fellow, and I further understand and hereby voluntarily authorize various and nefarious Federal agencies to review my otherwise personal and private information, both at the time of this application and from time to time thereafter, records for which activity may or may not be kept.

I understand that these agencies may include, but are not limited to TSA, TSI, FAA, FBI, CIA, USSS, and U.S. Customs.  I understand that these people often wear dark sunglasses and compulsively check over their shoulders from time to time for no apparent reason; but since they are actually on our side I understand and support this otherwise aberrant behavior.

Furthermore I waive any right to bitch and moan, as, when you stop to think about it, I am applying for clearance to a private facility which can do whatever it likes, whose actions just happen to coincide with a practical solution to security concerns.  So there.

I understand and accept these bizarre requirements
