Nigerian Air Force recruitment 2020

Nigerian Air Force is recruiting suitably qualified personnel for REGULAR COMBATANT (RC), DIRECT SHORT SERVICE COMMISION (DSSC) and BASIC MILITARY TRAINING COURSE (BMTC) positions. Nigerian Air Force was established in 1962 to provide the required air support to Nigerian military. Simultaneous with this development, Government was in dialogue with some friendly nations on the possibility of training Nigerian Air Force personnel in various specialist fields.


The first batch of 10 cadets was enlisted in 1962 to undergo training with the Ethiopian Air Force. The second set of 16 cadets was enlisted in February 1963 to undergo training with the Royal Canadian Air Force while six cadets were sent to the Indian Air Force. The stage was thus set for the training of its personnel in the country. Consequently, several countries were approached but the lot fell on the German Air Force to provide technical assistance for the local training of NAF personnel and this materialized in 1963. The recruitment opens on 24 July 2020.
