Young Museumgoer shares his journey to become a pilot

Graham Santilli, an Envoy Cadet Certified Flight Instructor and student at the University of Oklahoma, aspired to be a pilot from a young age. Hungry for knowledge about the aviation industry (…and to geek out about the Flagship Knoxville DC-3), Graham spent many weekends at the American Airlines CR Smith Museum. His mom, Beth Santilli shared, “While other kids were deep into video games, my son talked my husband and I into visiting the Museum at least once a month for years!” Graham shares his journey and tips for aspiring pilots in the video.
