Towards the end of the second year, (unless otherwise indicated) the member will be given the opportunity to indicate whether he or she would like to extend the contract or leave the Air Force.

Members who do not extend their two year service contract, will serve in the Reserve Force (part-time) after completion of the initial two-year period.

This necessitates the successful completion of prescribed military courses during the first year of the contract, whereafter the contract will be extended if selected, followed by studies at selected tertiary institutions and continued service in the SANDF for the remainder of the contract period.
