    Yes friend,

    Airforce comes under NDA.

    NDA stands for National Defence Academy.

    The exam is conducted by UPSC twice in a year.

    The exam is just not for any one particular wing.

    This exam is conducted for the entrance into 3 wings of defence i.e, Army, Airforce and Navy.

    While filling up the form for NDA you should mark Airforce option as your first priority.

    The same exam is for this only so syllabus and selection procedure is same,
    although something may differ during Interview.

    But written exam for NDA is same for all wings.



    The exam is objective type.


    It is same for all wings but for Airforce you have to appear for one extra test i.e Pilot aptitude test. If you qualify this then only you move towards other stages.



    You must have completed your 10+2 schooling from a recognised University.

    Those who are in their appearing year are also eligible for the exam.

    Your age must be between 16.5 to 19 years.

    Only unmarried female candidates are eligible for the exam.

    You should be an Indian citizen.
