Air Force Journey

Sharing my journey through Air Force Officer Training School (OTS) and beyond.


FY2018 TFOT Schedule

Here is the official TFOT class schedule.  It was posted on the Air Force Portal on May 11, 2017.

NOTE:  These are the TFOT class dates, NOT the TFOT board dates.

Class# Start Date Grad Date Training Days
18-01 12-Sep-17 9-Nov-17 42
18-02 19-Sep-17 17-Nov-17 42
18-03 9-Jan-18 9-Mar-18 42
18-04 17-Jan-18 16-Mar-18 42
18-05 28-Mar-18 24-May-18 42
18-06 10-Apr-18 8-Jun-18 42
18-07 19-Jun-18 17-Aug-18 42
18-08 26-Jun-18 24-Aug-18 42

I counted out the business days for each start/grad date and they varied from 42 to 44.  Once I accounted for federal holidays and typical MAJCOM four-day weekends (e.g., Independence Day, Memorial Day, etc.) the number of Training Days (TD’s) was 42 for each class.  This is also roughly 8 1/2 weeks.

    Is there any new info on AFROTC (Field Training) official Max dates for FY 2018?

    • Unfortunately I am still working on getting smart with the ROTC processes. Did those dates come through Maxwell in the past? If I had to guess I would say that information is controlled by ROTC detachments
