Six-year-old boy 'pilots' Etihad plane: A six-year-old boy who once amazed some airline crew during a random visit to a cockpit finally got the opportunity of a lifetime. Etihad Airways announced on Thursday that it had invited a little boy named Adam Mohammad Amer to "fly" an aircraft at its training academy. Wearing a specially made pilot uniform, Adam was given the chance to operate an Airbus A380, the world's largest passenger plane. "If we overshoot the runway, I’m gonna have to shout ‘turn around’,” the little boy told his “co-pilot”. The airline had invited the kid, who is of Egyptian-Moroccan origin, to become a pilot for a day after he impressed the crew with his aviation knowledge. Captain Majed Al Marzouqi, Etihad vice president for flight operations, said the boy's enthusiasm reminded him of his own as a child, 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," he said.
