Etihad Airways allows 6-year-old boy become Pilot for a day ( Watch Video)

A child genius, Adam Mohammad Amer has been given the special honour of becoming a pilot a day by Etihad Airways.

Adam Mohammad Amer, aged just six, has already turned his dreams into a reality after giving the pilots onboard a recent Morocco-Abu Dhabi flight a surprise.

He gave detailed procedural accounts of the aircraft operating systems and demonstrated a deep understanding of emergency procedures having memorised them from YouTube videos.

Adam, of Egyptian-Moroccan origin, became a social media star after the encounter as flight captain Samer Yakhlef, with permission from the family, posted the video online and it soon gained more than 6 million views.

The reward for his devotion to aviation was an invite to the Etihad Airways Training Centre where he was handed a specially made uniform and underwent pilot training – including sessions in the Airbus A380 simulator.

His enthusiasm reminded Captain Majed Al Marzouqi, Etihad Airways Vice President Flight Operations, of his own ambitions to be a pilot from a young age.

He said Adam showed “incredible intellect and knowledge” and hoped the experience has encouraged him to pursue his passion when he is older.
