Since you can remember, have you wanted to be anything but a pilot in the U.S. Airforce? Well, if not a pilot, then maybe you wanted to work on, design or build aircraft. The U.S. Airforce is filled with a diverse and talented staff of knowledgeable professionals, from engineers and pilots to aerodynamics scientists and mechanics.
So, where do you fit into the greatest air force in the world? Well, that's where the Air Force Officer Exam (AFOQT) comes in. This exam will show you where your biggest strengths are, and areas you can use improvement or more schooling.
Questions such as, "What are ailerons used for?" or "What do you call the force that overcomes gravitational force and keeps the airplane flying?" may help you figure out if you have the aptitude to be a great pilot. Do you know what makes a plane turn? How does the plane raise into the air? Or, where the cowling is located on a plane? Sounds like some serious stuff, doesn't it?
From the specifics of aerodynamics and how the plane operates to general questions of science and aviation such as knowing if air density affects a planes capability or remembering Newton's first law of motion, these questions will push you to the limits.
Take this quiz to see if you have what it takes to be the flyboy you always thought you were!
