Yes. A flying entity can travel one z level up or down at the same time that they travel 1 tile on the x or y direction.

if you want to secure your fortress, you should change your up/down staircase to just an up stairs, or dig out an up stair below your up/down stair and then construct flooring over both the open spaces.
