Pilot Aptitude Battery Test (CPSS)

The PABT, or Pilot Aptitude Battery Test, is conducted by the Indian Air Force to select candidates who want to join the Flying Branch as a pilot. The PABT consists of written and machine tests designed by the Defence Research and Development Organization (DRDO) to evaluate a candidate's ability, presence of mind, control of limbs and nerves, fast response, and judging power. The overall aim is to identify a candidate's attitude and mindset potential to become a successful pilot. These qualities are considered essential for a candidate before training at Air Force Academies to be molded into successful pilots.

Candidates are allowed to attend the PABT only once in their lifetime, as it is believed that a person who lacks the natural instincts, personality, and ability to become a pilot cannot be trained successfully. Therefore, the PABT is conducted to ensure that only the most suitable candidates are selected for the training program.
