    Hi


    Indian Air Force is the Air wing of the Indian Army.


    [COLOR="rgb(154, 205, 50)"]NDA stands for National Defense Academy and it is conducted by the UPSC every year to select candidates for the Indian Army, Navy and Air Force.[/COLOR]


    Now As you ask I must tell you, that only UNMARRIED MALE CANDIDATES are eligible to apply for the NDA exam.


    This is because, the Defense subject is a matter of strength. I do not think that females have greater or at par physical strengths to the male. So this is why, this rule is imposed.

    I do not say, that females are barred from working in the Indian Defense, but there are always office and camp jobs which suits the ladies and so they can take it up by sitting in the CDS.

    Moreover I must tell you, that no country allows females to fly fighter jets, or even employ in the fighting army. Its because of the natural discrimination that god has made, females are not to be exposed in the wars.

    Hope this is convincing.

    All the best.

    what would you suggest women, to be a airline pilot or a fighter pilot?
    what are the chances of women getting accepted as pilots in IAF?

    You are really a great woman who thinks herself to be an fighter pilot. Why not ? Women can also become a fighter pilot. You must be graduated in any discipline from a recognised university. You should have 60% aggregate in total subjects of your graduation course. Your age must fall in between 19 to 23 years and you must be medically fit. In case, you don't fulfill the above requirements then you will not be eligible for it. For the recruitment in fighter pilot you have to fill the NDA form. Then you can join IAF through Short Service Commission. Then you will be tested for to know army like strength and medical tests will be taken. Being all clear you can serve as a fighter pilot:-).....
