Six-year-old Adam has always been fascinated by planes and aviation. His dream is to become a Captain of an A380 Airbus.
On board a flight from Morocco to Abu Dhabi, our Etihad Airways Cabin Crew noticed that the boy clearly wanted to fly the plane and was passionate about aircraft. They decided to create the opportunity of a lifetime for Adam, by inviting him into the cockpit.
The video went viral after Captain Samer Yakhlef managed to film some of Adam’s genius on his phone. The world was captivated. We were so amazed by Adam when he came to talk to us in the cockpit, that we wanted to make his dreams a reality.
Adam became an Etihad pilot for a day, and actually had the opportunity to fly his favourite aircraft in our Training Academy simulators. Captain Adam, may your dreams fly high!
