They have, over 1000 ft/sec. gets good range.
It actually predates flight. Riverboat pilot?
Also refers to a cow catcher, TV show up for evaluation, experimental program...it's a good thing the English language is so concise.
I'd be pretty surprised if a bb could reach the altitude of a balloon or penetrate the bottom of a gondola, but maybe it might make an annoying noise.
I would quite like an airship, perhaps I will buy one when my plan for becoming a world domineering evil mastermind comes to fruition!
Yes. People occasionally die, sometimes spectacularly, in those things when they hit stuff or run into power lines. It's uncommon, but wind shifts or pilot error can do you in.
I’m ok with it. Somebody has to be in charge up there and know what to do to operate it.

Pilot is originally (and still) a nautical term, as appropriate for aircraft pilots (drivers?) as for balloonists, I guess.
It's my understanding there is a lot of skill involved in ballooning, too.
We're well beyond "get off my lawn" - if somebody is having fun somewhere, we want to complain about it!

It's a strange label for some licensed airplane pilots I have known.

.22 Pellets, but yes they do.
It's kinda like calling a motorcycle operator a "driver."
The descriptor just doesn't fit the task very well.

Not always, apparently.
Welcome aboard U S Airways, your Pilot for this flight is
I'm not sayin it's easy, but your piloting choices are pretty limited
Not strange at all. Pilot's license needed, a great deal to know and be aware of, huge responsibility. Different mechanism, otherwise much like fixed wing or rotating wing flight.
