    This can easily boosted with yourself at any hangar location on the map. First you'll want to spawn a plane with machine guns on it, like the Carmina or The Wild Goose. Once spawned, move it slightly forward and turn it around for it to face the spawn location for the hangar. Go back to the hangar and spawn another plane. Head your original plane, and destroy the newly spawned plane. Repeat this process until the achievement unlocks.

    TheDonPalumboI had initially had trouble with this achievement where it wouldn't register, but it seemed to work when I destroyed different planes. I could destroy The Wild Goose once and it would count, but not anymore. Just a tip in case anyone is having issues.

    xThe LArchitectMay be a patch but try spawning different planes. Destroying the same ones wasn't registering.

    Tendoman77I used Nick's own plane (the yellow one you gotten in his mission) at his place in Holland Valley as my target, just fast travel back to the place everytime you destroyed his plane and it will always be there.

    I used the helicopter from the viatnam DLC since it was avaliable from the get-go and the machine guns do the job enough.

    Kinda like the others mentioned here. Go to Nick Rye's, jump in his plane and take off. While in the air, open your map then fast travel to Nick Rye's. You will fast travel in your plane. This will place you directly at Nick's Gate with another plane parked there, drive your plane through the gate a bit(can be tricky to not hit the gate) and shoot and destroy the parked plane, Fast travel again. Rinse and repeat 10x's. Fast and easy method

    For people wanting to do this 'legit', there's a way. Mostly, you won't get credited for air-to-air kills, since you just damage the enemy planes enough so that they end up crashing.

    What you need to do is to take either a plane or helicopter that is equipped with rockets. Then, fly at low altitude along the shores of rivers and lakes looking for seaplanes. If you shoot at them with your cannons, they'll simply sink, and won't count for the achievement. However, if you shoot rockets at them, they will instantly explode, which will count. Finding ten should not take long, even if you choose to save the $1000 reload fee and pick up a new aerial vehicle at a helicopter/plane shop.
