I am a B.Tech Computer Science student in India. Soon after my studies I will get a job somewhere in computer science field. I am interested in technology, and things like Artificial Intelligence that is why I joined this technological field. But, I have huge interests in flying aircraft and also some other fields. When I was young, I wanted to be a pilot.

We have reserve army in India, so do we have reserve air force also?

If yes, how can I become reserve fighter pilot in it?

What is the procedure for it?

In this way my two other dreams will also fulfill that are flying and serving nation in part of the year.

So as a conclusion, in major part of year I want to work in technology (AI in computer science) and in remaining part of year, I want to serve the nation as reserve fighter pilot.

    $\begingroup$ While there may be members of the IAF that post here, you would be best served speaking with a recruiter. I am a former US military pilot, but I would give the same advice to a US citizen because while some requirements are constant, others change based on current staffing levels. $\endgroup$ Apr 14, 2021 at 3:24
  • $\begingroup$ I'm not sure how it works in India, but in the US this would be difficult to do. Most USAFR pilots are ex-military, in order to become a pilot you would need to be a commissioned officer and complete OCS, as well as the pilot training. As far as I can tell, India does not have a reserve air force. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ @RonBeyer, Bro people asked me to ask this separately, that's why I asked here, also I did not get its answer in previous question and i also deleted my previous question because that was not well framed. So i do not think that this is duplicate. $\endgroup$ Apr 14, 2021 at 4:38
