To do this is to select "Missions -> Single Missions -> Pacific Ocean Theater -> New Guinea Campaign". I found the quickest / easiest mission to be "Flying Boat". You may do this with both Simplified Controls and in Offline mode.

The mission objective is to land a Catalina Flying Boat near a friendly fleet and close to land. There's not too much to this, other than the unfamiliarity with landing a huge seaplane.

To do so, begin at about 70% engine and slowly begin to bleed off speed. Pass over the small island in front of you and lower your altitude while continuing to drop speed. Kill the engines entirely after you've passed the island and put 'er in the water. It will take a LONG time to slow, so don't be afraid to put it down too early. You can always up the engines if you'll stop before getting to the waypoint. You'll need to be near 30 kph at the waypoint to win the mission.
