Air Force Height and Weight Standards

Air Force delayed enlistment recruits

Find below the Air Force weight requirements for joining. 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 the 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 under 30, 24% for males over 30, 28% for females under 30, and 32% for females  over 30.
