Deliberate mistake: During the previous scenes were Maverick is flying the Aurora spy plane his helmet is light it up on the inside, so we can see his face. In reality the light would be reflecting off the plexiglass, and we would not be able to see his face, and he would not be able to see.

Other mistake: During the training scenes, aviators are told to keep a 500 to a 1000 ft safety bubble around them at all times. In multiple scenes you can see where they are almost flying in a wingtip formation.
