Yep. That sort of shot requires compositing, whether its shooting the person as a seperate element and animating additional height into their jump, using a 3D double and compositing that animation into the background, or just having the actor on wires so you can get them really high, and removing the wires from the shot. There are lts of different ways to do the shot, but pretty much all of them require a good compositing program.

Well, you could mask around the person to seperate him from the background, then follow the general directions in this thread .Somewhere there used to be a sticky for Super Power tutorials, couldn't find it. The one I gave you isn't great, but it gives you the basic idea.

With Composite Lab you have the actor make a little jump and adopt a "power jump" pose in front of a green screen. You then film a background plate of a scene hold it then tilt up. Composite your actor over the background so the tilt begins just as he jumps and it will look lke he flies up in the air with the camera following him. Alternatively move the quad with the actor in over a stationary background plate.

Sadly you will need Comp Lab for this effect though.
