Yes, at normal flight speed for about 6 hours (they carry more air but they
requre more too. It's still 5d6 turns fresh, then fouled until the 30 turn
mark). Few can spelljam without a helm.

Any fire that passes out of an air envelope fizzles, period.

Any 20 plus tonnage ship, although you may want to rip out a few bulkheads
(thinning the hull and worsening AC 1 place). Also if they are going to man
the helm (given that they have aquired spellcasting ability already) you
may want to move it to the cargo deck, unless they all have some sort of
draconic poly self ability)
