Random information on the term “Pilot”:
An aircraft pilot or aviator is a person who controls the flight of an aircraft by operating its directional flight controls. While other aircrew members such as navigators or flight engineers are also considered aviators, because they are involved in operating the aircraft’s navigation and engine systems. Other aircrew members such as flight attendants, mechanics and ground crew, are not classified as aviators.
In recognition of the pilots’ qualifications and responsibilities, most militaries and many airlines worldwide award aviator badges to their pilots, and this includes naval aviators.
The first recorded use of the term aviator (aviateur in French) was in 1887, as a variation of “aviation”, from the Latin avis (meaning bird), coined in 1863 by G. de la Landelle in Aviation Ou Navigation Aérienne (“Aviation or Air Navigation”). The term aviatrix (aviatrice in French), now archaic, was formerly used for a female aviator. These terms were used more in the early days of aviation, when airplanes were extremely rare, and connoted bravery and adventure. For example, a 1905 reference work described the Wright brothers’ first airplane: “The weight, including the body of the aviator, is a little more than 700 pounds”.
