    Sure you are eligible to join after the 12th standard. You can do so by appearing for the NDA exam. But it is a must that you should have studied science subjects during 12th standard. Also you should be at least 16 1/2 years. There is maximum limit of 19 years too. On clearing the written test you will also need to appear for the physical fitness test. You also have the option to join after graduation. You should have either pursued Bachelors in Science i.e Physics and Maths or Bachelors in Engineering. You will need to appear for the CDS exam. The age limit for this exam is a minimum of 19 years. The maximum is 25 years. You can decide based on what you feel is best option for you.

    As to join the Indian Air Force as a Pilot, you can appear in the NDA exam. Candidates who have finished 12th can apply for the NDA exam. NDA is carried out in order to take in excellent candidates to the army, Navy and the Air force. Students from Science group are only taken in for the Air Force academy. The age requirement is 16 to 19 years. Students should practice extensively and diligently as to pass this exam. There will be Physical fitness requirement which the students need to pass in order to get an entry to this academy. If you wish to go for a graduation or engineering after 12th then by the completion of these courses you can also appear in the CDS exam and join the IAF. You must be within the age limit of 19 to 25 years for this. Students with B.Sc Physics or Math and BE/B.Tech students can also apply for the exam.

    Yes off courses you can become Airforce Pilot after your 12th class ,There are exam called NDA specially for such particular things ,Through NDA you can enter any of the defence services like Indian Army,Indian Airforce and Indian Navy.For this exam You should be minimum in 12th class or you should have completed with Physics ,Chemistry and Mathamatics .Your age should be between 16 1/2 - 19 1/2.NDA gives you the job which you can not even think of it,Its a good choice to for and work for the Nation .The next exam date for NDA is 21 aug and but the last date to avail the form was 9th may .So I would suggest you to apply next time and clear the exam.
    I wish you all the best !!!

    Yeah sure a 12th standard student can become a pilot in Indian air force only if he has cleared the NDA entrance exam for which the minimum eligibility condition is 12th. You also need to clear the pilot training test after entering into Indian Air Force.

    Re: Can a 12th standard student become a Pilot in Indian Air Force?

    Great dream like many youth boys.

    12th passout/appearing students can join Indian Airforce as a Pilot by appearing in NDA ( National Defence Academy) examination conducted by UPSC ( Union Public Service Commission) twice in a year.

    To join Navy and Army wing the candidate must have Physics and Mathematics at 10+2 level.

    Generally a student get 3-4 attempts to appear in NDA exam but there is only and only one attempt in a life to become pilot(while interviewing).

    So such a great apportunity in life but very rare to qualify.
