Default Re: Selection In Indian Air Force

The Indian Air Force is the air arm of the Indian armed forces. It is the World's 4th largest airforce. Its primary responsibility is to secure Indian airspace and to conduct aerial warfare during a conflict.

As your brother wants to join the Indian Air force let me tell you that one may join the indian Air force by two ways :

First through the AFCAT Examination
Second through the Recruitment rally

the Selection into the Indian Air force are done through the Written Examination and Fitness Test Interview

Written Test

(a) Group 'X' (Technical) Trades Candidates are tested in English, Physics and Mathematics. Duration of written test will be 60 minutes.

(b) Group 'X' (Education Instructor) Trades There will be two papers - an Objective type and a Descriptive type.

(c) Group 'Y' (Non-Technical) Trades Candidates are tested in English and Reasoning & General Awareness (RAGA). Duration of written test will be 45 minutes.

(d) Group 'Y' (Musician) Trades Candidates are tested in English dictation and proficiency to play the musical instrument applied for.

Physical Fitness Test (PFT):

Candidates passing the written test are to undergo Physical Fitness Test (PFT). Passing the PFT is mandatory.
The PFT for all trades [except IAF (Security)] consists of a 1.6 Km run to be completed within 8 minutes.
The PFT for IAF (Security) trade includes a 2.4 Km run & 5 Km run to be completed in 15 minutes & 30 minutes respectively.
Candidates above 27 years of age will be given relaxation in PFT timing as per existing norms (Applicable to serving NC (E) s only). Candidates completing PFT faster are awarded additional marks on a sliding scale.

Candidates passsing PFT will be interviewed by a team of Officers & Warrant ranks. Interview is normally conducted in English. Working knowledge of English is thus essential

Medical Test : Candidates who have been recommended in the interview will be medically examined by the Recruitment Medical Team as per Indian Air Force Medical Standards.
