    After one of the story missions you will be able to destroy Fizzco Blimps that fly above the Sunset City. Instead of running around and looking for them you can easily blow up 25 blimps using Glider Challenge #1. Start this challenge, ignore mines and destroy blimp right away. Now press Menu button on your controller, then X and abandon challenge (if you restart, blimp won’t reappear). Repeat every step until you get your achievement. Check video below if you have problems.

    CraigyB78The blimps only appeared during the challenge after I completed the final mission.

    Much faster than other method. Fast travel to "Oxfords Base", once you arrive, head to the right and climb up to the higher bridge. There will be a blimp just above your head, shoot it down with whatever weapon you like, then fast travel back to Oxfords Base and the blimp will respawn. Please check the video for detail.

    Both of the above solutions are great but this is how I got this chevo.

    Go to the Glider Challenge number 2#, accept it and right after start of that challenge and you will see a blimp right ahead of you but you will notice that it is somewhat far away. Instead ignore it for a second and make a 180 spin and you will see a second blimp just right behind you. Destroy that first and then go for after that first saw blimp. Yes this challenge has 2 blimps instead of one !

    After blowing up those 2 blimps, just crash you're glider to the ground and accept continue (press cn_A button). You will then re spawn right next to that challenge marker and those blimps will re spawn too. Accept that challenge again and just rinse & repeat afterwards.

    Hopefully this one helps, cheers !

    Edit 1: Instead of 360 spin, it is now 180 spin. Thx for RAVIOLICAPONI for correcting this.

    Little extra tip from CHUCK NO7715; " - instead of simply crashing each time to respawn/restart, have a look around the area and look for Fizzco neon signs or Fizzco balloons and glide through those also. Helps bump up the numbers on collecting these items at the same time as notching up the blimp destroy task."

    Janenzki@Fuuldrin Have to correct your statement a little bit there. You can get those two, just double tested this again and even after that second blimp I did got 1 minute left in timer. And not a single time I did not go over the mission area.

    Summa sumarum; This solution works till this day.

    You forget just how good some of the respawn sequences are after dying.

    TS GhostI don't start the Challenge, I just turn around, jump to the other building, and wait for the blimp to come into range before shooting it down.

    Teleport back to Glider Challenge #2, and the blimp gets into range again within about 28 seconds or so.
