The post Career as an IAF Officer: Touching the Sky with Glory appeared first on EduPadhai.

Introduction


Indian Air Force, an arm of Indian Armed forces and defines life of an Officer as the ‘life of a warrior’. As an officer in Indian Air Force, you are entrusted to guard the constitution and  sky boundaries  of the nation to protect  the freedom of the country. Career in the the Air Force glorify you in society and in nation with immense degree of self satisfaction.

Therefore, the motto of IAF is also to ‘Touch the sky with Glory.’ There have been many glorious leaders in the Indian Air Force who have been honoured by many awards based on their dedicated  services to the military and distinguished performance during the service.

 Gallantry awards:

  • Param Vir Chakra
  • Mahavir Chakra
  • Vir Chakra
  • Ashok Chakra
  • Kirti Chakra
  • Shaurya Chakra

There are also several service medals that are awarded to officers for their service and gallantry like the Vayusena Medal.

Branches Available Under Indian Air Force


Duties under IAF are divided into mainly two categories:

  • Flying Branch
  • Ground Duty Branch

Flying Branch

As the name suggests, this branch is the beguiling aspect of IAF wherein you can be part of the military as a helicopter pilot, fighter pilot or a transport pilot. This service will allow you to serve the country in both war time and peace time missions.

Candidates can apply for the Flying Branch after 10+2 through the National Defence Academy Examination or after completing graduation through Combined Defence Services Examination (CDSE). Another medium to enter this branch is through the National Cadet Corps Special Entry.

Ground Duty Branch

Unlike the Flying Branch, the Ground duty branch is not involved in the flying part but the operational part of the Forces. It is further divided into two categories:

Technical Services:

As an officer in the Ground Duty (Technical) Branch, the personnel will be required to manage the team and ensure that the Indian Air Force remains airworthy. A technical officer will be in-charge of handling some of the most sophisticated equipment in the world by joining one of the sub branches. Some of these sub branches are Electrical, Mechanical, etc.

Non-Technical Services:

As a non-technical services officer, the personnel will be needed to manage all the material and human resources that form part of the IAF. This team manages the overall functioning of the entire services.

Candidates can apply in the Ground duty branch only after they complete their Graduation. For the technical branch, candidates with a four-year degree in engineering are only eligible to apply. While for the non-technical services one can apply with any graduate degree.

Selection Process


Before applying for a position in the Indian Air Force, an aspirant must know that an ideal height and weight is the basic requisite which is mentioned on the IAF website. For the candidates from North East region and Kumaon, Garhwal, and Gorkha region; there is a relaxation of 5 cm for height.

IAF expects the aspirant to be of sound physical and mental health, and free from any form of disability, so that there is no hindrance in performing the duties. Urine test, vision test, hernia test, and dental health test are some of the tests for which the aspirant needs to get his medical examination done.

Other than these medical tests, the candidate needs to qualify rigorous physical and mental examinations. They need to first qualify a general knowledge and reasoning test (like CDSE/NDA), once he/she qualifies that then there are many rounds of physical examination that checks the candidate’s physical rigour and mental strength.

Conducted by the Staff Selection Board (SSB), this process consists of the psychological test, group test and the Interview. The entire process usually lasts for up to 5 days.

The written test, and the step one for selection can be done through following examinations:

  1.      NDA (National Defence Academy) Examination (for only 10+2 candidates)
  2.      Combined Defence Services Examination (CDSE) (for graduates)
  3.      NCC Special Entry (for Graduates)
  4.     Air Force Common Admission Test  ( AFCAT) (for Graduates)

For NDA/CDSE:

The advertisement for NDA is released twice a year, in Jun and December, and for CDSE in the months of July and November by UPSC.

For applications, the candidates are required to be sent to UPSC and then the test are conducted by UPSC.

For AFCAT – Air Force Common Admission Test:

For all entries other than NDA and CDSE and for all branches, the candidates must undergo AFCAT. These are mainly the ground duty branch positions for both technical and non-technical sections. Like CDSE and NDA, this test is also conducted twice a year i.e. in February and in September. The advertisements for AFCAT are released in the months of June and December. AFCAT test is conducted across India by the Indian Air Force.

NCC cadets, who hold the position of Air Sqn NCC Senior division ‘C’ certificate, are eligible to apply for a position in IAF through Director General of NCC or through respective NCC Air Squadron. After this step, the candidates are required to appear for AFCAT. The NCC candidates have a special quota in IAF.

For the Flying Branch, candidates also need to appear for the Pilot Aptitude Battery Test (PABT). This test is designed to assess a candidate’s aptitude to be trained as a pilot. PABT includes three tests – Instrument Battery Test (INSB), Sensory Motor Apparatus Test (SMA), and Control Velocity Test (CVT).

For the flying training, the IAF Officers are trained in the IAF Academy, Hyderabad where Stages I, II and III of the training are completed. If the candidate has not been trained under NDA, they complete a 6-month training at IAF Academy in Begumpet.

Marshal of Indian Air Force Arjan Singh was the first personnel who was promoted to the rank of Air Chief Marshal in the year 1966. The gallant officer who passed away in 2017 served as a commanding officer in the 1965 India Pakistan war and won the prestigious Padma Vibhushan. Post his retirement from IAF, he worked as a diplomat, political leader and even Lieutenant Governor of New Delhi. In the year 2002, he became the first and only officer of the Indian Air Force to be promoted to five-star rank i.e. that of a Marshal of the Indian Air Force. This rank is equal to that of Field Marshal in the Indian Army.

In the history of Indian Air Force, another name that will star forever is that of Avani Chaturvedi who has become the first woman fighter pilot (solo) for the country earlier this year. She was commissioned by the then defence Minister Manohar Parikar. The 24-year old officer from Rewa district of Madhya Pradesh joined the IAF Fighter Squadron in 2016, and she, along with two of her cohorts, Mohana Singh, and Bhawana Kanth became the first women who will rank as the first women combat pilots of IAF. Three of them are currently under further training.
