AFOQT Scores

Here's a website where you can look up AFOQT scores:


Our MINIMUM requirements:

Before applicants can be considered for Undergraduate Pilot Training they must have taken the AFOQT. This is a five-part test given at bases and recruiting offices around the country. You must take the AFOQT before applying for UPT.

The five sections and minimum scores for each are:



Academic Aptitude--0



Combined pilot\navigator scores must total 50.

BAT Testing and AFOQT scores

BAT Testing and AFOQT scores

The following site has locations and contact info for setting up BAT tests as well as showing your PCSM score. I think its based on a combination of flying experience and the AFOQT/BAT scores. Hope this helps.

Before applicants can be considered for Undergraduate Pilot Training you will be required to take the BATS test. This tests your hand-eye coordination. The test is much like a video game with several different tests. The test scores are combined into a single score. Some sections may be weighted more heavily than others.
