Well lets see here.

Harrison Ford was mentioned.
Michael Dorn (Worf from Star Trek) is.
George Bush was
So was is son George Bush
John McCain-His was the A-4 that took the rocket that started the fire on the Forestall.
Jimmy Steward retired a Brigadier General in the USAF reserve-he flew
Christopher Reeve did his only flying in a film back in the 1980's, I think it was called the Postman or something.
I can't remember if Clarke Gable trained to be a pilot or bombadier.
George Kennedy flew
Do I even need to bring up Travolta?

Randy Rhodes of then Ozzie Osbourne's band Black Sabbath. He died when his wing clipped the tour bus while buzzing it, lost control of his airplane and crashed. Oh yeah he was lead guitarist and now has a cool Jackson guitar named after him. I guess alot of musicians are pilots also.
