    Re: How to become a woman pilot in Indian Air Force?

    dear,
    you have correctly said that women are capable of doing anything then why can't pilot, women are being selected for air force as pilot..
    there is only one way to be a pilot for women in air force i.e through AFCAT .
    you may apply for this if you are graduate in any discipline having phy and maths in +2 level.
    this form is available twice in a yr in jun and dec.
    age limit is 19-23 yrs, if having CPL(commercial pilot license) then it is 19-25 yrs.

    Re: How to become a woman pilot in Indian Air Force?

    Hello,

    In order to become pilot, first of all you need to appear for written exam of CDSE (grants permanent commission) and after clearing it appear for Service selection board (SSB) or you can directly appear for SSB through SSC( Grants 14 years commission). However the main thing needed to be a pilot is to clear PABT.

    PABT stands for pilot aptitude battery test, it is a lifetime test and a candidate who did not pass in it is never given second chance. It starts with the first day of the SSB and consists of tests like meter reading, telling plane direction and some games to test your mental alertness and your reflexes.

    So go for it

    Thank you

    Hello

    There is only one way through which you can apply for Indian Air Force as a pilot.
    The entry name is AFCAT(Air Force Common Admission Test).
    It is a entry in air force for all three branches of air force namely flying branch,technical branch and ground duty branch.

    Now in order to become a pilot you need to apply for flying branch in AFCAT.
    The educational qualification required is graduation from any stream but with physics and maths in 10+2.
    Age limit is 19 to 23 years(at the time of commencement of the course,not at the time of applying).

    A previous notification of AFCAT is uploaded for your reference.

    Re: How to become a woman pilot in Indian Air Force?

    Sorry friend you can't join the defense service as pilot in the air force.

    Because defense don't allow the woman to join the naval or air force academy.

    So can't be a pilot in Indian air force service.

    But if you want to join Indian army you can.

    For this you need to apply for the CDS exam.

    Through CDS exam you can join the Officer training academy and join the defense as officer.


    The maximum age limit to apply for the CDS exam is 19 to 25 years.

    You should be minimum graduation qualified from recognized university or its equivalent.

    You must be the citzen of India.
