#Fan of #Elon #Musk, #Graham #Shema knows, at age 7, how to fly a plane

#At only 7 years old, this little #Ugandan boy has already flown three times, and dreams of becoming a pilot and an astronaut.

PRODIGY – #In #Uganda is perhaps the youngest admirer of #Elon #Musk. #At only 7 years old, #Graham #Shema, who is now nicknamed “#Captain” #Shema, already knows how to fly a plane. #His early knowledge of aeronautics led to him being invited by the #German #Ambassador and the country’s #Minister of #Transport to participate in meetings.

#In the cockpit, #Graham doesn’t seem impressed with all those buttons, levers, as you can see in the video at the top of this article. #In fact, he feels at home. #At his age he has already flown three times as a trainee on a #Cessna 172, a small four-seater passenger plane.

#Passionate about mathematics and science, #Graham is already able to explain how an airplane engine works. #Decked out in his tailor-made suit, it is with pride that he affirms: “#Later, I would like to be a pilot and an astronaut”.

#He dreams of one day being able to go to #Mars, or to the #Moon, but also to shake hands with his model, the founder of #Tesla: “I love #Elon #Musk, because I want to learn with him about space. , go with him into space “. #In #May 2020, #SpaceX made history after sending two men into orbit. The company wants to be able to make travel to #Mars accessible one day.

#Young #Graham’s passion for aviation, however, comes from a curious event. #When he was only 3 years old, a police helicopter that was flying too low in the sky exploded on the roof of his grandmother’s house near the #Ugandan capital #Kampala. #At that time, he was playing outside.

#According to her mother, “it started something in her mind.” #Following this accident, he would not have stopped asking him questions about the operation of planes. #So last year, she made the decision to offer him lessons in airplane parts and the language of aviation.

#It was after only five months of apprenticeship that #Graham began taking practical flying lessons. “I felt like a bird flying,” he said of his first flight. #Stopped by the pandemic, he would currently be immersed in space exploration thanks to his virtual reality simulator.
