United States Air Force Officer Pay
Officers in the U.S. Air Force receive a monthly salary called basic pay, determined by the officer's current DoD paygrade. Air Force officers range from paygrades O-1, Second Lieutenant, to O-10, General of the Air Force. Air Force officers receive automatic pay raises every one to two years based depending on their paygrade, with lower-ranking Air Force officers reaching their basic pay ceiling much sooner then higher-ranking officers.
In addition to basic pay, Air Force officers are eligible for a wide variety of additional payments, bonuses, and allowances. These include hostile fire pay, food and housing allowance, personal money allowances, hazard pay, and more.
