AFSB (Air Force Selection Board) Testing: Shortlisted candidates from the written exam are called for the AFSB testing. This stage involves multiple rounds, including psychological tests, group discussions, and personal interviews to evaluate the candidate’s personality, leadership qualities, and suitability for the Air Force.

Medical Examination: Candidates who clear the AFSB testing must undergo a thorough medical examination. This step ensures that they meet the physical and medical standards required to serve in the Indian Air Force.
