I went and tested this just in case, here is a Pokemon showdown(!) replay of the test battle.

As you can see, it doesn't affect it.

Credit goes to pancakez for helping me o3o!

No, it can't, unless the move 'smack down' has been used, which means flying types can be affected by ground types.

There are a bunch of other exceptions, like gravity, iron ball, ingrain (with baton pass), and thousand arrows.
