6-year-old becomes pilot for a day for Etihad Airways

by Neha Monga

The child prodigy, who became an internet sensation with a viral video that showed him explaining an aircraft’s operating systems to Etihad Airways pilots, got an opportunity of a lifetime to become a pilot for a day, all at an age of six.

A video of Adam Mohammed Amer, posted by flight captain Samer Yakhlef, had earlier gone viral, where during his random visit to cockpit, he was seen giving detailed procedural accounts of the aircraft operating systems and explaining exactly what happens during emergency landing, demonstrating sound technical knowledge gained from Youtube videos. The viral video gained more than 6 million views.

After impressing the crew with his deep aviation knowledge Adam, who is of Egyptian-Moroccan origin, was invited by Etihad to fly his favourite Airbus A380 in the airline’s training academy, in a gesture to make his dreams of becoming a captain come true.

Dressed in custom made pilot uniform, Adam underwent pilot training – including sessions in the Airbus A380 simulator. The little boy sounded like a pro as he ended his four-hour experience by greeting passengers over the plane’s tannoy, “Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to Abu Dhabi and thank you for choosing Etihad.”

The video posted by the airline about 2 weeks back has garnered close to 600,000 views.

We wish Adam all the very best for the future and hope that he pursues his dream of becoming an Airbus A380 captain.
