とんでもない is actually a sound change from ()でもない (there is no way / path), and not related to 飛ぶ.

Also, just reading the dictionary explanation on goo, which explains that in polite speech it should be said using 「とんでもないことです」 or「とんでもないことでございます」 although recently a lot of people are using 「とんでもありません」or「とんでもございません」.
