This is pretty easy just a little grindy.
You'll need about twenty minutes to get to the spot where you'll be grinding and then the grinding itself should take about a little over an hour.

Start a new game, difficulty doesn't matter but if you're just doing this then you can select easy, I did it on normal. Don't really advise hard and you'll find out why in a little bit. Pre-rendered cutscenes can be skipped by pressing cn_A if you want to speed things up a little but they're not that long.
So play the first mission which is also the tutorial and you should eventually get to a "MISSION COMPLETE" type of screen where it tells you how well you did.
Next you'll have to travel to a blue point on the map, do this.
You'll get a cutscene, skip it if you want. This next little part soldiers will start dropping from helicopters, do not kill all of them, kill about six and then run or jump around and take cover behind objects but stay in their general area. Eventually one of them will phone in for a strike team.
This is now your time to run, look at the map to see where the little lightning bolt icon is coming from so you don't run into the chopper. Once you've ran out of eyesight of the soldiers/chopper (you should see the shutter closed in the lower left of your screen) press left on the d-pad cn_left to use your disguise. Now just wait a little and you should hear them saying how they can't see you and then the chopper will fly away. After "OBJECTIVE COMPLETE" pops up on screen you should see progress in your achievement go up if you have it snapped. If the chopper flies over you it may trigger a mini-cutscene, don't confuse this with having been spotted. Basically if they don't attack then you're good and even if they do attack I believe you can still just run away, disguise when they don't see you and it will still count but it's probably just faster to reload the checkpoint instead of trying to run away from a chopper that has you spotted.
After the percentage goes up don't finish the mission instead press cn_start and then scroll down to the bottom of the pause menu where it says "QUIT" and then you'll have two more options, select the top one "RESTORE CHECKPOINT" which will put you back at the part where the soldiers drop down. Rinse and repeat.

Now for why you don't want to play on hard it's because of those soldiers, the group can collectively do lots of damage so to not waste time from dying I suggest playing on one of the lower two difficulties. You also need to watch out that soldiers can kill themselves by blowing up cars from shooting them a lot and they can also shoot each if they're in the way to where you are, so if someone is trying to make a call for the strike team it can be disrupted from friendly fire. Soldiers that get disrupted will keep trying to call until the team is alerted but you want to waste as little time as possible so don't let the game AI slow you down.
One last thing to note, DO NOT RUN SOUTH (the opposite direction of the "N" on the mini-map, every other direction should be fine, If you ever see a blue bar in the upper-right of your screen with a helicopter and it says something like "EXTRACTION" then you've triggered the next part of the mission. This is fine, just resume checkpoint and it will bring you back to the last part.
