There are two routes for joining the Indian Air Force as a Pilot in the Flying branch: one, after 10+2 via the National Defence Academy (NDA) Exam and the other, after graduation via the Combined Defence Services Examination (CDSE). Upon clearing the Test, you will be called to an Air Force Selection Board for Pilot Aptitude Battery Test (PABT) followed by a series of group tests, psychological tests and interview. Incidentally the PABT can be taken only once. Eligibility criteria for CDSE is a B. Sc degree with Physics, and/or Maths or BE/ B. Tech, Age: 19-23 years. There is a special provision for male NCC ?C? Certificate holders in Sr. Division (Air Wing). Upon successful completion of training, cadets are absorbed as permanent commissioned officers in the Flying Branch of the IAF. Watch out for the notifications for both exams that appear in leading national dailies in the months of April/ May and October/ November each year.
