The Indian Air Force conducts the Air Force Common Admission Test (AFCAT) to select Class-1 Gazetted Officers in Flying and Ground Duties (Technical and Non-Technical). The examination is held twice a year, in February and in August/September. And millions of people take this exam in the hopes of joining the acknowledged Indian Air Force Academy and becoming an Indian Air Force Officer.
AFCAT is a gateway for both male and female candidates who wish to join the Indian Air Force for both Short Service Commission in Flying Branch and Permanent Commission/Short Service Commission in Ground Duties for both Technical and Non-Technical roles.
