    Yes.

    That is the answer.

    One of the officers in my unit was an ex Compass mechanic of the IAF.

    Would not know about the IAF, but in the Army, he has to do a mandatory number of years of service.

    He has to apply thereafter and be recommended up the chain.

    He sits for an exam, SSB and physicals.

    Then Medical.

    And he joins Army Cadet College, passes that and goes to IMA.

    Hey presto!

    He is now an Officer!


    I suggest you check with the local air force station/ The Recruiting Office for more details.

    OK, since you are keen, I did a Google search.

    This is what I found:

    ARMY CADET COLLEGE COURSE

    IAF provides opportunity for airmen with minimum 10+2 educational qualification and below the age of 27 years to become commissioned officer in Army through Army Cadet College Course. The eligibility candidate has to pass the written examination conducted by Army HQ. On passing the exam they were interviewed by SSB. If selected, Army HQ details the candidate to undergo the ACC course at IMA, Dehradun and on completion of the course at IMA, they are granted commission in the Army.

    SERVICE ENTRY COMMISSION

    IAF provides opportunity for Sgt and above with minimum 10+2 educational qualification, f10 years of service and in the age group of 34 to 42 years, to become permanent commissioned officer in ground duty branches (Technical and Non-Technical) in the IAF. Airmen with higher education qualification and sports achievement are given weightage in select ion process. Eligible airmen have to pass the written test and SSB interview to be selected for commissioning course at AFA. On successful completion of the course they are granted permanent commission.

    Back in 2007 I had passed y category airmen selection test ,but I thought that I will never get a chance to become a commissioned officer & I chosed not to go to the airmen training centre in bellary and insted chosen a btech course.on that days if
    someone had told me about chances of rising to the rank of a commissioned officer through ranks of an airmen,now I would have been probably serving my nation.
