Not really. However, since the vast majority of respondents have answered "no", the reason its not even a question is because he doesn't need any such thing.
Really, I think people are underestimating how useful "ability to fly" is. Think about the Batman movies, and how much he exploits the ability to glide. Now imagine someone who can "glide" around a fair bit faster than that, with more maneuverability, and without needing a line gun to gain altitude.
Sure, he's no Thor, but he'd be at least as capable as the other elite SHIELD operatives.
