Physical fitness testing changes are coming.

ST. JOSEPH, MO. -- Members of the 139th Airlift Wing will see a change in the Wing's fitness program beginning April, 2011. In conjunction with physical training leaders, the 139th Force Support Squadron will utilize fitness assessment cell coded (FAC) personnel to perform Wing testing. FAC is a one-stop-shop for testing members to ensure full compliancy to AFI 36-2905.

Testing will be available to traditional guard members three times per UTA every year from April to September. The target number per testing period is 40 to 60 members. All full-time members and AGR's will have the opportunity to test on the third Thursday of April through September. Failure retesting for each group will be handled on a case-by-case basis outside of regular testing schedules.

All members of the 139th Airlift Wing are required to wear the proper Air Force physical training uniform during their fitness assessment.
