    Hello

    There are three entries to become fighter pilot in Indian Air Force.
    1)NDA-National Defence Academy and the qualification required is 10+2 with physics and maths.
    2)CDSE-Combined Defence Service Examination-the qualification required is graduation from any stream but with physics and maths in 10+2.
    3)AFCAT-Air Force Academy-the qualification required is same as CDSE,but requires 60% to apply for AFCAT.

    A old notification of CDSE,NDA and AFCAT are uploaded for your reference.
