Our Air Force PT calculator estimates the points you scored during your air force physical fitness test.

Our AF PT test calculator will also provide you with your performance level, and a commentary on the passing requirements.

How to use this Air Force PT calculator?

To use our Air Force fitness calculator, you'll need the following data:

  1. Your age and sex;

  2. Abdominal circumference;

  3. Amount of sit-ups performed during 1 minute;

  4. Amount of push-ups performed during 1 minute; and

  5. An aerobic fitness assessment:

    • Time to complete a 1.5-mile run; or
    • Time to complete a 2 km walk.

The Air Force fitness calculator will show you how well you scored in each category, and the maximum number of points for each.

  • If you were cleared to run as your aerobic test, you will also receive a composite result and the overall number of points.

  • A 2 km walk is the only approved alternate aerobic standard for the Air Force physical fitness test. It's intended for people who were not cleared to run due to a medical condition. If you walk, you will only receive information about whether you passed or failed.

AF PT test

Both our AF PT calculator and the original Air Force physical fitness test consists of four main parts:

  1. Body composition - maximum of 20 points.

A measurement of your abdominal circumference (AC). To measure your AC, you will need to find a place directly over your right hipbone (the superior border of your iliac crest), located in the middle axillary line. You need to perform the measurements in a horizontal line, around your body. You may also want to check your waist to hip ratio, your body fat (for army examinations), or your BMI for your own personal assessment.

  1. Aerobic composition - maximum of 60 points (walk: passed or failed).

A 1.5 mile run or 2 km walk, depending on your doctor's assessment. You are allowed to perform a 3 minutes warm-up before and a cool-down afterward. Time to complete the task will be measured in minutes (Do you already know how to convert army time?).

  1. Muscular fitness component: sit-ups - maximum of 10 points.

  2. Muscular fitness component: push-ups - maximum of 10 points.

Both muscular fitness components can be performed before or after the aerobic test. Only push-ups and sit-ups performed correctly will be count into your final score. Check this detailed instruction for push-ups and sit ups.

Air Force PT Passing requirements

In order to pass, you need to reach the minimum component values in all of the separate categories - none of your results can be zero.

In addition to that, you must score over the target value of 75% for the overall, composite score.

❗ If you perform the alternate aerobic standard, you must pass the walk, and complete the minimum and target values for the muscular components and abdominal circumference tests.

Our Air Force PT test calculator will automatically place your result into one of the following categories:

  • Excellent ≥ 90%
  • Satisfactory 75 - 89.9%
  • Unsatisfactory < 75%

Air Force PT test chart

This Air Force PT score calculator uses data from the official US Air Force's personnel center.

Air Force PT charts are designed for particular groups of people, divided into 10 parts based on a subjects' age and sex. The criteria is more strict for younger people and males. There are the following age groups:

  • under 30 years old
  • 30-39 years old
  • 40 -49 years old
  • 50-59 years old
  • >60 years old
