Use of "rocketeer" is more a wink/nod to the fans of that movie. Like a bit later when the newspaper gets photos of Sky Commander and they're trying to give him a name for the headline one of the suggestions is "...the rocketeer?" and the editor says, "Don't make me come over there!" So it's all in good fun.

And yeah, with all the world building that has to be done for the time period, etc, Rita Gruben is becoming the "Agent Carter" of the story. I think she's cool. ;D
