    Hi guys,
    I have just heard that IAF doesn't accept candidates taller than 190 cm.
    Is that true?
    Also any chances of height restrictions being loosened by 2 cm i.e. to 192 cm?

    Also is there any max height limit for army and navy?

    Man I will be sad to know that not only I am ineligible for F1 driver and astronaut :p but also for fighter pilot.

    I think excessive height is also a norm for disqualification.
    Why not try athletics, football or fast bowling?

    I got rejected from Navy but don't know about Army.

    BTW I think both F-16 and LCA uses same ejection seat.
