    Re: Procedure to apply in Indian Air Force as Pilot? Basic required condition for engineer?

    If you want to become join Air Force after Graduation then you have to apply for CDS and AFCAT .

    CDS is Combined Defence Services Examination.

    AFCAT is Air Force Common Admission Test.

    The basic qualification required for above examination is Graduation in Any discipline for Non Technical posts and for technical posts Graduation in Engineering or maths or physics.

    The age limit for Air Force Academy is 19 to 23 years. So you must ensure that you complete your Graduation before 23 years if you want to become Air Force Pilot.

    The selection will be based on the performance in the following stages:


    -Objective Type Paper

    -SSB Interview

    -Medical Examination

    For Flying branch there will be PABT (Pilot Aptitude Battery Test). This will determine whether you are fit to become an Air Force Pilot or not. So be prepared for the CDS and AFCAT as you are eligible for these examinations.

    Re: Procedure to apply in Indian Air Force as Pilot? Basic required condition for engineer?

    Hello

    The whole process is explained below.

    The air force has three branches in all total
    a)Flying branch b)Technical branch c)ground duty branch

    In order to apply for the pilot spot you need to apply for the flying branch of air force.
    Three are three entries for the flying branch.
    a)CDSE-Common Defense Service Examination-The entrance which is conducted by the UPSC,twice in a year and through CDSE you will be able to enter the AFA.
    AFA-Air Force Academy.
    The qualification required is graduation from any stream but with physics and maths in 10+2.
    Age limit-19 to 23 years(at the time of the commencement of the course).
    CDSE notifications are released in the month of the June and October in the employment news paper and in the official website of UPSC(www.upsc.gov.in)

    b)Through AFCAT-Air Force Common Admission Test-the entrance is conducted twice in a year and the notifications are released in the month of the June and December.
    Same qualification as of the CDSE.The exam is conducted by the Air Force only.

    c)If you have a NCC 'C' certificate,then you can also apply,same qualification.

    Note:the age mentioned above is the 19 to 23 years(at the time of the commencement of the course),means you age should be between 19 to 23 years when the course starts ans it nearly takes year time to start the course from the date of applying(as there are three stages of including entrance,interview and physical fitness).
