Niki talks to Colin Slade, Air Force Captain, about physical requirements, physical training, and physical fitness tests for the Air Force, Space Force, air crews, and pilots.
The demands for Airmen and Guardians differ greatly between jobs and from day-to-day. While people tend to think of pilots when they think about the Air Force, pilots represent a relatively small percentage of people who serve in the Air Force.
Pilots--especially fighter pilots--face extreme physical requirements from the speeds and demands of “pulling Gs.” The Air Force has created technology to help pilots meet those demands, but physical readiness can help the service member meet the demands.
There is a growing recognition that the “industrialized PT model” isn’t working, and many services are bringing in license physical trainers to help plan and lead physical training programs.
And, what is the 1 MED change Colin would make to the Air Force PT program? Listen to find out!
