    Was wondering how deep this TSA security check goes? Not gonna lie, got in some trouble (all misdemeanor stuff) during my younger days. Hoping this doesn't hold me back

    I don't think you need to be squeaky clean like a TS with full poly. :D

    Though now that I say that I wonder....

    I "think" they said they are looking for significant infractions (DUI etc) in the last 5 years. I'd like to know the official response to this. I'll ask and see what I can find.

    Thanks guys. I'll know in 7 days I guess, so I will be sure to update when I get the yes/no from TSA :(

    Only thing I could find was about FAA sport pilot qualifications. That said they look for felonies withing 1 year or OVIs within one year with another Motor Vehicle Infraction within one year of that for disqualification.
