This was the first non-story achievement I unlocked. You can do this immediately once you visit the priest.

The rules are simple: travel a half mile without landing on any horizontal surfaces. This means you can't land on the ground, rooftops, or ledges. I got my half mile in an "L" shape, so this is a half mile total, not a half mile East to West.

There are only two buttons required for this achievement: Right Trigger and A.
Wall Run: just run up to a wall or jump on it and hold Right Trigger.
Glide: once in the air, hold Right Trigger.
Jump: Press A.
Air Dash: While holding Right Trigger and gliding, press A.

Your control should go like this:
1. Hold RT to wall run and press A to jump onto a building.
2. Run towards the top of the building. Press A right before you reach the top to jump away from the building.
3. Quickly let go of RT and press and hold it again. You will then glide.
4. When your glide appears to slow down, tap A without letting go of RT. This will make you Air Dash. After you dash, you will glide up a spec, then level off.
5. Aim towards the side of a building. You will start to descend, so land on the side of the building with RT still held down.
Repeat steps 2-5 until the achievement unlocks.

Stay as far from the ground as possible. I plotted my course from the hospital in Oakhurst all the way North, then hooked West towards some more tall buildings. You wouldn't want to head South through Oakhurst, for example, and try to wallrun up the sides of shorter buildings.

Later in the game you will acquire mutations (powerups) that will extend the length of your glide, your overall speed, your jump height, and give you additional air dashes, so if you are having difficulty getting this early, you may want to wait until later in the game.

Please let me know in the comments if there is anything you would like clarified or elaborated.

EDIT: Lucid Dreams84 has contacted me and asked if I could post his video in my solution. It's very well thought-out and shows exactly what you need to do. If you prefer video solutions, this one is worth your time, so I've added it below. Please note that I recommend dashing AFTER you glide; Lucid Dreams dashes BEFORE gliding, and he covers less distance than my method.
