    I am an appointee to USAFA '21 and I've been reading through the instructions to appointees and I'm a little confused about the difference between the AFT and the PFT. Is the AFT just the mile and a half run? Are the PTF and AFT usually taken together one right after the other? I have been training hard to by ready for the physical challenges at the academy.

    Aft is just the run, and no, they are on different days, usually about a week apart when I was there.

    PFT - pull-ups, standing long jump, sit-ups, push-ups, and a 600 meter sprint.

    AFT - 1.5 mile run

    They average into your PEA and this past spring we took them with 1 day in between. Depends on the year/schedule.
