List of IAF Women Pilot Trainees Exam
During the nineties Indian society saw an increasing demands for greater participation of women in all fields, including Defence Services. In recognition of the demand, the IAF initiated a case for obtaining the necessary sanction from the government.
In June 1990, the Government of India approved the sanction of women in the officer cadre of non-technical, ground Duty Branches, viz, administration and logistics.
Also, a number of representations were received from qualified women pilots for opening the doors of entry to the Flying Branch of IAF. As a sequel to the enthusiasm generated, the IAF approached the Government for a favourable consideration of the case.
In August 1992, the Government approved the induction of women in Flying and Technical Branches on an experimental basis with a tenure ranging from six to ten years.
