The movie "The Rocketeer" had a DOS game if I'm not mistaken. Never played it though, so I don't know if it fits the description.

Duke Nukem 2?

He doesn't have a jetpack the whole time, but as I recall he spends some time with it in episode 2 of DN2, and it looks similar to HH/AC with "blonder hair".

Searching MobyGames for "Jet Pack" also turned up Forgotten Worlds

Thanks so far guys, I was chatting to my sister and she remembers the game more now since hearing the duke nukem 2 game its not the same game but the sounds are very similar. we think theres an element of collecting items (as with a lot of games anyway) and he may well have been in space

Captain Comic 2: Fractured Reality gets a jetpack, collects items, and is in space, but not sure the graphics are up to the same level as DN2, etc.

IIRC, Dangerous Dave has similar sounds to Duke Nukem.

[edit]
Just saw a video of DN2 on YouTube - I was dead wrong, the sounds are completely different, my apologies.

Could it be Gateworld? I'm not sure if that's exactly a jectpack on that guy's back, or just an oxygen tank...

Nope it didnt have any background music, I remember at the start of one level you would fall down a long tunnel and then get your jet pack at the beginning and you couldnt go high enough to get out that way and had to go another way.
