[QUOTE=maddusajj;365862]hi...
at your age ,the best way to become an indian air force pilot is to write and clear the NDA EXAM,
even after clearing the nda exam there are many other special considerations for joining the air force.
first of all your eye sight should be perfect,without any repair don on it,
also they will check your body and find whether the build up of your body can take the g forces which an pilot experiences,
and most important point to note is that you have to pass an stimulation program to become an pilot,and if you fail that exam you will never in your life will get another chance to become an pilot,

To Serve nation is very good effort. You should go for-
1. NDA or CDS exams. But 12th with pcm (55-60% marks). NDA exams is conducted twice every year- in April and october.
2. Your eye sight should be perfect.
3. You may also join flying traning course.
4. Age should be 19-23.

Dear Friend,

Please achieve your goal through NDA exam. This exam is conducted by UPSC
twice in a year. Once you clear exam you will be called for SSB interview.

If you would clear SSB than you will be given chance through a merit list prepared by the UPSC.

I wish you all the best.

Ramjash
