As we all know, in a few decades people will be travelling by Volantis, it will be the primary method of travel :yes:

The problem which struck me however, what happens when you have two or more? :udidnt: What do you call it when you have multiple vehicles? :confused:

Do you add an "es" to make it plural? Volantises?
Do you get rid of the "s" like "platypus" to "platypi"? Volanti?

Do you not change it at all, like "fish" stays "fish"? Volantis?

Volantis looks like a 3rd declension noun in Latin (to be precise it looks like the genitive singular of volans, the present participle of volare, 'to fly'). The plural would be volantes. 

 

Those who say it should be volanti are confusing the 3rd declension with the 2nd declension.

According to the internet, the plural of "mantis" is mantises or mantes so since Volantis also ends in "tis/is" I'd say we should treat it the same. So either the 1st option or Volantes
