'Crypto-' is from the Greek, 'kryptos', for 'hidden'. To move
from 'ufology' to 'Crypto-Aeronautics' and denote the UFOs as
'Crypto-Crafts' is pure silliness. Why would you want to talk
about these as "the hidden science, theory and practice of
aircraft navigation" and why would you be studying 'hidden
craft'? The revealed nature of ufology and the UFOs are what
propels your study, not that they are 'hidden'.
