Okay, so you can likely get this through the course of regular play, but if you just want to grind it out really quick, here's a decent, very easy solution:

Obviously, you need the Wingsuit. If you've progressed into the campaign far enough to have the Ghale Homestead unlocked as a safehouse, then you're good to go. Fast travel to Ghale Homestead and head outside.

I'm not sure if you need to survive the fall in order for the distance to count toward the achievement, so let's play it safe and say that you do. Standing outside the Ghale Homestead, if you take a look at the map you'll notice there's a decent-sized lake just south of your location. If you've just exited the house with the door at your back, there is a cliff directly to your left that overlooks the lake and you can run and jump from there.

Be sure to jump! If you don't you risk tumbling to your death.

After you jump the screen will prompt you to push in the L-Stick to activate the Wingsuit. Once activated, pushing forward on the L-Stick will cause you to fall faster, pulling back on the L-stick will cause you to fall slower and 'glide'. Left and right on the L-stick are pretty self-explanatory. Use the left stick to 'glide' down over and into the lake. Try and 'glide' across the length of the lake before dropping in for maximum distance. Any fall into water can be survived (if it's not too shallow, that is), so you don't even need to pull the parachute. You'll be getting the full distance on the Wingsuit counted toward the achievement. Once in the lake, call up the map and simply fast-travel back up to the house. It doesn't take long to load at all.

Then repeat as necessary until the achievement pops.

Incidentally, the cliff you're jumping from is ultimately the helipad for the Ghale Homestead if you purchase the upgrade. You can then use the Buzzer to get a little more height for a longer-distance jump. However, once it crashes, the Buzzer does not respawn when you fast-travel back to the house. So it's a one-shot deal. I just ignored it and jumped off the cliff.

Depending on how often you used the Wingsuit up til now, this might take about 30-40 minutes. I hadn't really used it at all and that's roughly how long it took to pop for me.

Also, as a precaution, I can't recommend enough that you save every few drops. You never know when something unfortunate might happen. Like disconnecting from the Ubiservers, say...

For this achievement, you have to unlock the wingsuit which is gained through campaign progression.The best time to grind this is sometime after you have done the story missions for the .

The best place to go is Khilana Bazaar which is east of Banapur (the place where you start at in the game). There is a helicopter on the road east of the outpost which is very close. Get in the helicopter then fly up pointing towards the lake which is southwest. Get out when as high as possible then press L3 You will get about 500m each time you land in the lake. Just rinse and repeat and you will get the achievement really quick.
