4 ways to join the flying branch of IAF


 

“Pilots are a rare kind of human. They leave the ordinary surface of the word, to purify their soul in the sky, and they come down to earth, only after receiving the communion of the infinite.”

– Jose Maria Velasco Ibarra

 

Being a fighter pilot in the Indian Air Force is a different kind of charm. No other profession can match the thrill of flying with supersonic speeds in the mighty sky. Many see this dream since childhood and also complete this dream into reality. This article highlights all the ways to join the glorious Indian Air Force as a fighter pilot.


1-NDA entry

A male candidate who is in 12th class or has passed with Physics and Mathematics and who is within the age group 16 ½ to 19 years can apply for the UPSC NDA exam which is conducted twice a year.

While filling the application form you have to fill in your preference and you can choose the Air Force as your 1st choice.
