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...
