Well, to start I have a Misdemeanor A Conviction, for Forgery, a stupid thing I did when I turned 17, so it is on my adult record. Just to clear thing up I live in New Hampshire, here you are considered an adult when you are 17.
Long story short I was offered a job at MHT for U.S. Airways. As a Ramp Agent, I would definately love to work for US or any other airline, but I'm not sure I will pass the Airport's background check. I told the Airline about my conviction's and they said it should be fine, but I was fingerprinted and I guess my prints are being checked by the FBI in Washington. Because I would need Unescorted access to the Tarmac, and what not.
So I didn't know if anyone had any more insight than I do in to this matter. Thanks alot for your help.

Quoting USFlyer MSP (Reply 1): As long as its a misdemeanor, not a felony, you should probably be OK.
Correct, same situation (misdemeanor conviction) and I hold unescorted AOA access badges at two airports. As long as you didn't try to hide anything, a complete application with a misdemeanor shouldn't be a problem.
edit: Forgery is not a very good practice in the airline industry- but I suspect as a ramper it won't hold you back. As an A&P mech, I doubt you'd have much of a career with that on your record, but I could be wrong.
