The Air Force Fitness Assessment Appeals process was established to provide an avenue for administrative relief to address injustices or errors derived from the administration or execution of the Air Force Fitness Program. There are three levels of appeal:
Any active-duty, Guard or Reserve member of the Air Force may apply for appeals consideration.
If the wing commander or equivalent disapproves the member's wing appeal request, the next avenue will be the Fitness Assessment Appeals Board (FAAB). Applications reviewed by the FAAB must be filed within two years after the error or injustice was discovered. The two-year period does not include the time it takes the application to go through the wing appeals process. Submit the following mandatory documents to AFPC via the “Contact Us” button at the top of the page:
The Airman may submit optional supporting evidence to include any documents the applicant may deem appropriate to support the appeals request. Examples can be found in Air Force Instruction 10-203, Duty Limiting Conditions.
Note: In providing documentation, you consent to its use in making a determination. When the appeal is approved or disapproved, AFPC/DP2SSM Special Programs will inform the applicant via email.
If the FAAB disapproves or denies relief for the member, the final avenue will be the Air Force Board for Correction of Military Records. All documents that were previously submitted for a wing appeal and FAAB need to be included in the package to the AFBCMR office. The member may submit additional supporting documents.
