Air Force Officer Qualifying Test (AFOQT)

The AFOQT is a standardized multiple-choice test similar to the SAT, with additional sections for pilot and navigator aptitude testing. It takes about three-and-a-half hours to complete the test, and it is scored in five areas. You will receive a score based on percentile for each area (0-99):

  • Verbal: All candidates must achieve a minimum score of 15.
  • Quantitative: All candidates must achieve a minimum score of 10.
  • Academic Aptitude: No minimum score required.
  • Pilot: Requirements shown below.
  • Navigator: Requirements shown below.

You may take the AFOQT only twice, and you must wait 180 days between tests. The latest score counts, which may not necessarily be the best score.
