hallo dear friend
i hv studied your case
there are no exersizes to improve cubitus valgus
there might be some injury or infection in childhood
if you want correct angle you need angular deformity correction with osteotomy
but i dont know wll airforce will accept that surgical correction
for futher query you can contact at

Thanks for writing to us.
The extreme cubitus valgus that is interfering with your job needs to be corrected surgically. The surgery is done according to the degree of deformity that you are having. For lesser deformity, braces may also be used.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you. You can consult me again directly through my profile URL
