* ''{{Film/Stardust}}'' features sailors harvesting lightning from stormclouds on a skyship that looks exactly like a sailing ship. (And a captain with... unusual interests played by RobertDeNiro.)

* When the ''[[TheCaptain Captain]]'' or ''[[NumberTwo First Officer]]'' of your air''liner'' turns off the "Fasten Seat Belts" signs you may move about the ''cabin''. Flight Attendants were once ''stewards'' and ''stewardesses'', and they still serve food and drinks from a ''galley''. Very large airliners have upper and lower ''decks''. Aircraft are steered to ''port'' or ''starboard'' by ''pilots'' and one of the control-surfaces they use is the ''rudder''. At take-off and landing, the ''cabin crew'' are told to take their ''stations''. The space for luggage is ''cargo hold'', and the place for relieving your internal pressure is ''head''. While airplanes have fuselages, flying boats have ''hulls''.

** Giving the airplanes individual names (like ships have) instead of just referring them as their radio calls is customary amongst several airlines.

* Subverted in ''naval'' aviation where the flyers are '''aviators'''. That is because the term "pilot" has a distinct maritime meaning.

* While modern day aircraft my not invoke this trope that much, the airships of the early 20th century most certainly did. Not only were they large and relatively slow moving, but their massive, palatial interiors often wouldn't look out of place on an ocean liner. The ''{{Hindenburg}},'' for example, had private passenger staterooms, a bar, promenades, a double Grand Staircase (complete with a bust of Hindenburg himself), a piano lounge, a restaurant, and even an old-fashioned ship's helm used for steering in the Führergondel (what the Germans call a control car, "leader gondola").
