Airliners require minimum height of 160-165cm.

No height requirements

As far as i know there is no height requirement for pilot in asia specially for pilots in airline.
Have not heard of anyone facing any issues in airline jobs in india for that

As long as you reach pedals and fly you're fine but some airlines hire only more than +165cm

B 737

I can see the seat position in a 737 being limited by vision, full rudder and full stick back ( up)
Typically on a N-1 takeoff with a large split on V1 and Vr.
How high You have to be i would not know. I do know we have a jolly Captain that must be closer to 160 then 165.
Ask Boeing, they should know!
Good luck
Kind regards

Alternately borrow a FFS sim for 2 minutes?

There was an article recently in the Airbus Safety Magazine which give the design criteria of the A320 pilotís seat.
Iíll have a look to see if I can find it.
