Since I do not know your qualification, let me begin by a little description of what flying is all about.
Flying requires complete control over the devices, as well as being able to concentrate and communicate with the ground staff authorities, and being able to calculate the time, space and distance in times of emergency.
Thus the basic requirement for a pilot includes knowledge of Physics and Math.
As such a pilot need not be a Graduate.But minimum requirement is 12th pass with knowledge related to Physics and Math.
The Pilot training is divided into 3 main areas:
Student Pilot Licence ( SPL): The minimum requirement apart from 10th class and Math and physics knowledge, is that the candidate needs to be atleast 16 years of age. Also one needs to clear the medical fitness tests and tests related to Air control and other regulations.Once a students gets the SPL, he is eligible to move to the next level.
Commercial Pilot Licence (CPL): The minimum requirement here is the student must have an SPL, must be minimum 17 years of age and must be 12th pass, with knowledge related to Math and Physics.
Apart from this, the student needs a minimum of 250 hours of flying hours which includes 150 hours of Solo Flying, 25 hours cross country flying, 10 hours of Instrument flying and 5 hours of night flying. Also they have to clear the written examination which are conducted at;least 6 times, which includes a tests related to Air regulations, Aviation Meteorology Air Navigation, technical and Planning.

Greeting's for the day!!!
Being a pilot is one of the finest, toughest and best careers across the globe. Many people are uncertain about the procedure to become an airline pilot and about the various career options as a pilot. Pilots are highly trained and skilled professionals. They can fly various aircraft and helicopters. Flying does not require much physical effort but the mental stress of being responsible for a safe flight of an aircraft full of passengers in all kinds of weather can be demanding. Before take-off the pilot must prepare a flight plan, study the weather, make sure that the aircraft is airworthy, check that the cargo and fuel are safely loaded and work out estimated arrival time. Pilots can work as few a 8 days in a month, to as many as 20. While pilots at a major airline might work 14 days in a month, you must keep in mind that they are not coming home from work on those 14 days. Pilot need to be physical and mentally fit and have good eye sight and color vision. Every year, Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) will conduct pilot license examination in Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkata, Chennai, Ahmedabad, Patna, Guwahati, Bhopal, IGRUA, Bhubaneshwar, Hyderabad, Bangalore, & Kochi. If anyone is interfered to join for Indian Air Force (IAF), they need to clear the NDA examination.
Airline flying has the highest salary and most amount of benefits. Some of these are corporate aviation (flying company airplanes), agricultural flying (crop dusting), and you could fly full time in the military. Regional (or commuter) airlines also employ pilots, although the pay scales and working conditions are not like the major airlines.
One can get jobs at AirIndia, SpiceJet, Lufthansa, Jet Airways, AirAsia, IndiGo, National Aviation Company of India and many more.
Candidates who are applying for pilot training license, must undergoa medical test.
Candidates should meet the requirements set by the DGCA.
There is no need to be in perfect health to be a commercial pilot,but to get a job as an army pilot and other public sector pilots,perfect health is mandatory.
