Although the movie is mainly about the Project Mercury astronauts, a good portion of it covers Chuck Yeager breaking the sound barrier in the Bell X-1, so I'll allow it in the interest of inclusiveness.

(At any rate, all seven of the original astronauts were military test pilots -- and way overqualified for the job.)

I'll accept fictional aircraft if they're close enough to RL technology.
I guess Airwolf's out then
Yep, I'd say Airwolf was borderline SF. There ain't no supersonic helicopters!

@ Kai "the spy": Around the World in 80 Days is fine with me. I didn't say it had to be heavier-than-air aviation.
