Wordeee observes the use of words...

"Ever wonder where the term “pilot” comes from, as in “the first episode of a TV show?” Margaret Lyons from the New York Times was listening to the podcast “A Way With Words,” and someone called in with that very question. Turns out the term originates in radio, and comes from the definition of a pilot being one who guides — like a ship’s pilot. First episodes of TV and radio shows used to be just a test, a proof of concept, before they were green lighted for production — and thus were guides for would-be series. Fun facts!" Thank you Margaret Lyons for that observation!
