Air Force Height and Weight Standards

air force logo

Here are the Air Force weight requirements for joining (see the chart below). The weight requirements are exactly the same for males and females. The Air Force does not offer a weight reduction program. If you're over your maximum it is up to you to get your weight down.  Once you're in the Delayed Entry Program (DEP) it is your responsibility to stay under your maximum weight, if you are over you WILL NOT ship to basic training!

Note: Your weight and body fat determinations (as accomplished at MEPS or other point of entry to service) remain part of accession physical standards and may also be used as entry criteria for accession training programs. The standard is a maximum body fat of 20% for males <30, 24% for males >30, 28% for females <30, and 32% for females >30.

Below are the Air Force's height and weight requirements for recruits to enlist.
