TBAS/AFOQT Information

Det 075 offers the Air Force Officer Qualifying Test (AFOQT) and the Test of Basic Aviation Skills (TBAS) to AFROTC cadets during the Fall Semester, and sometimes throughout the rest of the year.


The AFOQT is required for all officer candidates to compete for any rated or non-rated line officer position. The AFOQT is similar to the SAT with additional Pilot and Navigator sections. There are five sections scored on a percentile basis. A passing score on the Verbal and Quantitative sections are required to continue in AFROTC. Cadets must take the test before 31 Dec of their AS200 year. Sign-up sheets will be sent out separately.

You are required to bring your military ID or driver’s license, your social security card when you take the test.


The TBAS is required for those pursuing a rated career (Rilot, Remotely Piloted Aircraft Pilot, Combat Systems Officer, Air Battle Manager). 

For the TBAS: You must take the AFOQT before attempting the TBAS. TBAS tests are easily scheduled and require coordination about 2 weeks prior to your desired test date.
Test dates/times are only offered Monday through Friday at 0900, 0930, 1030, and 1130.
You can take the TBAS three times and must have 90 days between TBAS exam attempts. The exam duration is approximately 1.5 hours.

You are required to bring your military ID or driver’s license, your social security card, and the candidate information worksheet found here: CANDIDATE INFORMATION WORKSHEET.pdf (af.mil). Additionally, while it is not a requirement, please bring your flight log book if you have logged any FAA simulator or flight hours–this will boost your overall score! The flight log book must have all columns totaled at the bottom of the last page, and the last page must be signed.

ROTC cadets can schedule the TBAS through the Education Officer or by using the email in the Contact Us section.
