    Hey friend,

    Being a graduate you can darely join in the post of Pilot in IAF.


    The way is that you need to write the entrance exam for joining and it may include such as:
    • CDS (Combined Defence Service)
    • AFCAT ( Air Force Common Admission Test)
    For applying for these exams you need to satisfy the eligibility criteria needed for the exams as framed.They may include such as that:


    For CDS:

    > The candidate appearing must be citizen of India

    > Only unmarried male candidates are only eligible for the CDS Exam.

    > The age limit for the CDS Exam is that the candidate must have 19-23 years for joining in Indian Air Force

    > Education qualification needed by the candidate for joining in Indian Air Force is that the candidate must have completed a degree in any discipline from a recognized university with physics and mathematics as subjects.

    > The candidate need to be physically fit.


    For AFCAT:

    There are 3 branches in this exam:
    • Ground Duty Branch
    • Flying Branch
    • Technical Branch
    As you have asked for joining in as a pilot,you need to satisfy the criteria's for Flying branch.


    > For applying for this exam the candidate need to be a citizen of India.

    > The age limit for the exam is that the candidate must have 19-23 years.

    > Education qualification would include such as that the candidate need to have completed a degree in B.E/B.Tech with at least 60% aggregate from a recognized university


    If you tend to satisfy all these above mentioned criteria's then you are eligible for the exams


    ALL THE BEST
