Best Answer

The word Aeroplane is made up of the two words Aero and Plane, Aero referring to the skies and Plane referring to the original meaning of Plane (as in Physical plane, plane of existence, etc.) which is to soar. This results in something that soars through the skies, a plane through the aero, an aeroplane. Incidentally, Airplane is a corruption of this word that originated during the aftermath the American war of independence, in which many people started creating alternative spellings and pronunciations to words they knew to try and separate themselves from the English without having a language of their own.
