To earn gold, you pretty much have to ace the landing, you will get "points" deducted to heavy landings, and for sideslip, this means you have to land straight, don't drift, and land very softly.

The biggest tip I can give is don't try and land from where the challenges start, its normally to high and too close to be able to set up a decent approach.

Instead, turn away from the landing zone, I normally try to aim for about 1nm away from the landing zone before setting up approach.

It pays to know the plane well, in this case, the Icon A5 normally approaches on about 45% throttle, but in the last of these challanges mean that to get a smooth landing in the short space you have to land in, you might want to reduce that.

Just stay smooth, small control inputs, leave the throttle set until you are just about to touch down, and you should be fine.

A quick point about the final couple of small water landings, you can run the plane up the bank onto land if you need to, however, if you are going too fast, you will crash and void the challege, so be careful.
