I would say that the plane, by lifting the skydiver to a higher altitude, imparts energy to the skydiver. That potential energy becomes kinetic energy when the skydiver jumps. Since the plane is not alive, it doesn't throw the skydiver, in this case the skydiver does throw himself using the energy imparted by the plane.
Plus, the sky diver actively colludes in being thrown.
