Some theist claim unnatural things are wrong.... Why they got no problem when they fly on airplanes, if flying is not natural for humans?

There is no such thing as not natural. Birds make nests. Does this mean that bird nests are unnatural? In like manner, humans make airplanes from naturally occurring elements and compounds that can be made with naturally occurring elements.
Now, if humans are a product of nature, or natural selection, then anything that humans produce is but an extension of nature. I think it is better to divide things into non-intelligently occurring and intelligently occurring objects. One comes before human intelligence, while the other comes after. Both, however, are all natural.
Take GMO, for instance. GMOs have been produced via artificial selection over thousands of years in out in the field (indeed, one look at wild versions of every vegetable and fruit in the supermarket will show that almost none of it is recognizable or desirable for food). Now that GMOs can be produced in a much shorter period of time in a lab, it is sometimes considered unnatural, but it is actually the natural future evolution of mankind.

Flying is completely natural for intelligent humans, it is thanks to flying that help arrives faster at areas hit by tornadoes or earthquakes

No, what we say is that something occurring in nature is not valid evidence that it's good behavior that should be imitated. That is, the fact that a ram had cornered another ram and is raping him isn't valid evidence that homosexual behavior is good and natural in humans. The "it happens in nature" argument is invalid.
Our human innovation and ability to overcome obstacles with technological advances is actually a natural ability present in humans, so it is valid to use human innovation as an argument for human behavior. Planes are the product of natural human innovation and advancement.

Because building tools is not unnatural for humans at all. And that's really all an airplane is.
