Are you seeking recruitment into the Nigerian Airforce through the short service application, this post will provide useful information on the requirements of the Nigerian Air-force short service, how to apply, the official Nigerian Airforce E-Application recruitment portal/website and the Nigerian Air-force help lines.
The Nigerian Airforce is one of the three military arm of Nigeria and just like the Nigerian Navy and Army, the Nigerian air-force also recruits able-bodied individuals to join the air-force through its short service application portal either as a direct short service course or a short service course. We explained the difference between DSSC and SSC here .
Nigerian Air force Short Service Application Program
The Nigerian Air force short service application is a yearly exercise carried out by the Nigerian Air force to recruit new officers (male and female) into the Nigerian air force.
After filling the form, you would be expected to wait for the list of the successful candidates that would write the Nigerian Airforce short service exam. After the exams, you would have to wait again to know if you are qualified for the screening. Normally, successful names for the Nigerian Airforce training are usually published on popular Nigerian newspapers. You would undergo intensive military training for about 9 months or more if successful
