    Change the settings to 6 misses.
    You will have to time your jumps to get each letter.

    There is some randomness and luck involved though.

    I will say that the sooner you jump, the more time you have
    to set up where you land. Although sometimes there isn't enough
    wind to allow you to land properly.

    For me, I usually wait until I'm right above the landing area and then deploy.

    Here's my completion of the goal: (IGNORE GRAPHICAL GLITCH OF CHUTE)

    First, you will want to change some game options to make this easier. Press Start and change "Misses Allowed" to 6.

    Controls
    cn_A - Jump
    cn_B - Open Chute
    cn_left or cn_right - Steer

    The object of the game is to score points by jumping from the plane, opening your chute, and then landing in the designated area. The game will cycle through the letters of the word "SKYDIVER" at the bottom of the screen and if you land successfully by your flag, you will gain whatever letter it was on when you jumped. Collect each letter and you will gain a bonus as well as the achievement.

    ErichoyaI didn't even think about changing the options but it sure would have made my life easier. Another tip is to pay close attention to the wind via the flag on the ground as you must factor that in when timing your jumps and chute deployments.
