Air Force Height and Weight Charts

In 2004 the Air Force set new weight requirements for joining (see the chart below). Another change is that the weight requirements are now exactly the same for males and females.

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.
