This can be done easily if you have a friend help you.

First, choose Versus, Xbox Live, Player Match, and then Custom Match.

At the screen where it is searching for active servers, hit Y to create a match. Change the game to a private match, select a map that has ocean terrain, create the server, and invite your friend.

In the hangar you may want to select a plane that has the Fast Recovery perk (perks are viewable by highlighting a plane and hitting LB), but any plane that doesn't have the Slow Recovery perk should be fine.

When the match starts, stay at a decent altitude and get above the water or a piece of land that is flat and at sea level. Go into Assistance OFF mode (double-tap LT or RT) and break (LT) until you stall. Quickly get your plane level but don't hit the accelerator immediately, instead wait until you are close to the ground then slam on it. If done correctly, the achievement and challenge of the same name will both unlock, too early and nothing will happen, too late and... well... I think we all knows what happens then.

The following planes have the Fast Recovery perk:
F-22 Raptor
Su-37 Terminator

The following planes will want to be avoided because they have the Slow Recovery perk:
Mig-25 Foxbat
