* In the {{Literature/Temeraire}} series, dragon-based aviation forms a branch of the military of many countries during the Napoleonic wars. The associate officers are given naval ranks, like cadet, lieutenant, captain, commodore, and admiral. The main character even used to be a 'naval' captain, until he became an aviator when he got a dragon egg thrown in his lap.

** This reflected the design philosophy of the time. Early semi-aircraft like Santos Dumont's designs had only a rudder for control, and mounted propellers with much the same design as those used by naval craft, as opposed to the 3-axis control and airfoil-shaped propellers pioneered by the Wright Brothers.

* ''{{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.


Added DiffLines:

* Many aviators refer their airplanes simply as ''ships''.

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