Default Na'vi name for my airplane

I have a new ultralight legal, but aerobatic capable aircraft that I designed, and am now finishing building that I would like to give a Na'vi name to.
Because I do so much aerobatics, I would like to call her "Cloud Dancer".
I found "cloud", Pìwopx, and "dance", Srew, but I don't know how to turn the verb to the noun "Dancer". Could someone give me the word, AND teach me how to turn a verb into a noun?
I have a FINE teacher, but this is my first week with him, and I have bugged him enough this week, so no disrespect at all to him, I just want to give him a rest for this one question, and then I will continue picking his brain.

-yu IIRC, although you might want to check there isn't any special case for certain words or anything.

If it were properly pronounced, it would be fine to be heard, but for someone who had their mind in the gutter to SEE it written on the side of the aircraft, it would be a bad reflection on Pandora, and on Na,vi, so I will leave it in English.

Guess who.


Well hello, Niri Te.

Cloud dancer would be something like

Pìwopxä srewyu: Dancer of the cloud / the cloud's dancer

Kaltxi Ma Tirea Aean. I was hoping that there could be another way to say it, because if it is painted on the side of the cowling of the plane, and some spectator at an Airshow who has had a beer or two sees it, they would see a lot of letters of a word that they know, their brain will fill in the missing letter, and that would reflect very badly on niNa'vi. As much as that is my nickname among other pilots who know me, and in speech, there would be no problem, I will NEVER run the risk of defaming the language, or the people.
As a result, I will paint Cloud Dancer on the aircraft.

That will happen in the Spring, ma Tsmuke, and when it does, I will load a photo of it into my album, and onto the post announcing the event.

If you look in the upper left corner of this post, you will see my avitar, and it is a photo of me flying another of my airplanes, which is named "Manu Sina", which is Samoan for Friggate Bird. I am at about 3000 feet and climbing when this was taken.

Yes Dream Hunter, about 1000 meters up. I climbed to 2,500 meters to fly where I was going.

I just think "The Flying iron_jones" would've been a good name.
