I am in Std IX. I want to become a combat pilot in the Indian Air Force. What should I do after Std X? And where do I have to go for admission and training?
In order to become a combat (or fighter) pilot you should join the flying branch of Indian Air Force, There are two ways to enter it: as a graduate or through NDA (National Defence Academy). For both entries, you should have Physics and Mathematics in 10+2.
Only male candidates are eligible to apply for NDA. For selection, UPSC conducts an entrance examination twice a year. Short-listed candidates go through a rigorous three-year training regimen at the NDA at Khadakwasla, Pune, followed by specialized training at one of the Air Force training establishments. On successful completion, they are commissioned as Permanent Commission Officers and posted as pilots at any of the Air Force stations.
Otherwise, after completing your graduation you may enter the flying branch through the Air Force Academy. There are three ways: CDSE (Combined Defence Services examination), NCC Special Entry or SSC (Short Service Commission) entry.
