Earlier this month, six year old Adam Mohammad Amer of Egyptian-Moroccan origin, surprised pilots onboard an Etihad Airways flight from Morocco to Abu Dhabi by giving detailed procedural accounts of aircraft operating systems and demonstrating a deep understanding of emergency procedures. 

Captain Samer Yakhlef, through the consent of the family, filmed the encounter and posted it to his media social channels. The young boy’s outstanding knowledge of intricate aircraft operations endeared him to the public with views of over six million on social media.

As a result, Etihad Airways invited Adam to the Etihad Airways Training Centre to undergo pilot training for a day. The six-year-old was dressed in a specially made pilot uniform and went through several Airbus A380 simulator sessions. 

Captain Majed Al Marzouqi, Etihad Airways Vice President Flight Operations, said, “Seeing Adam’s enthusiasm reminds me of my own as a young boy, with dreams of becoming a pilot. It really is a wonderful opportunity for us to engage with the children of our community. Adam shows incredible intellect and knowledge, having learned complex operational procedures from YouTube videos. I hope he has enjoyed his day in the life of a pilot and that it encourages him to pursue his passion when he is older.”
