    Dear aspirant,

    If you are applying for AFCAT exam then you have three option flying branch , technical branch and ground duty branch.


    -For flying branch and technical branch of AFCAT you should be Graduate in engineering or Graduate is subjects like physics and maths.


    -For ground duty branch you should just a simple Graduate in any any discipline from a recognised university.


    If you are B.Com then you are only eligible for ground duty branch and not eligible to become a pilot ( flying branch).
