I can't imagine that they can fleet. P40 of the codex says to refer to the BGB for details of the movement of jetbikes.
This page (54 in mine) outlines exactly what a jetbike can do, and as Fleet is not on there, I'd say that you can't. The only difference for the Eldar is the 6" extra move in the assault phase if you wish.
But I call to God, and the LORD saves me.
Nothing stops you, technically. Even on a bike, the autarch's rules still include fleet of foot - using a bike does not prohibit the use of this special rule.
It's dumb, but it's legal.

Well, if you think about it, its fleet of foot, not fleet of hover-pad thingy.
Sure, the rules don't say you can't, but they also don't say you can.
I play my 40k with friendly fire.
Finally fixed the link!
And in response to the question, I don't have the Eldar Codex, but it seems to me that if the Eldar Codex says to see the BGB in regards to the way jetbikes move, then you have to follow all the movement rules for the Jetbike. If the Auroch had it's own jetbike movement rules, it would not say 'See BGB'. And while fleet is a special rule, it's a special MOVEMENT rule. So you either use the Aurochs move, and can fleet, or you use the jetbikes move.
Do Guardians on Jetbikes specifically state that they cannot use the Fleet rule?
My opinion on this subject is that common sense should override RAW. If your going to get into it like that, then it should also be legal to Fleet in your opponents shooting phase. The rules technically allow it, but your opponents gonna hate your guts if you try it. Is that worth it?
