To get a water assisted landing, you need to perform a landing that begins in the water, but ends up on dry land.

The easiest place to do this is probably on one of the rivers in Alaska. Simply land as if the river was a runway, near the bank. Once you touch down, don't brake. Instead, keep your throttle open and use the rudder to steer onto land.

This can definitely be achieved using the Carbon Cub. I don't know if any of the other non-amphibious aircraft will work for it.

EDIT: Per phaser80 in the comments, this can be done with the Stearman and can be done in Hawaii. So you don't actually need the Alaska DLC to do it.
