    Re: How to join Indian Air Force as a Pilot?

    sorry dear,



    i am really sorry to inform you that right now you aren't eligible to apply for IAF,
    as you haven't completed your 12th,
    and diploma after 10th is not equivalent to 12th,


    if it is equivalent to 12th then how could you pursue diploma after doing 12th,
    this both contradicts ,


    it will be better for you to become graduate as soon as possible,
    through lateral entry, in any recognized university,

    if you will become graduate then you may apply for

    CDS:

    for IAF as pilot:
    graduate in any discipline,
    having maths and phy. +2 level.
    age limit is 19-23yrs,.



    ground duty branch:
    through AFCAT:


    graduate in any discipline ,
    having minimum of 60%,
    age limit is 20-23yrs.



    as your age is not much, you may pursue lateral entry(it allows candidate to enter in graduation 2nd yr if having diploma).



    all the best............

    Re: How to join Indian Air Force as a Pilot?

    Dear..

    Sorry to say but to become a Pilot you have to clear a exam called NDA. This is the first option that can help you in becoming a pilot. You said that you are a student of diploma and you have not passed you 12th class so you have to pass 12th. One more problem that arises here is that you said that you are 17.5 years of age that means if you go for regular studies then in that case you will be over age for NDA. If you manage to do 12TH within a year (through private mode) then you may get a chance to give NDA exam.

    You can then go for AFCAT but in this exam all the person need to passed in science or engineering student of 19-23 to become eligible for the exam.

    Hope it will help

    Cheers...!!!
