    **This is a borrowed method from the original Reach solutions with a tweak to Rally Point and description. Credit to gamer "Jesticulator" for the original solution**

    Very easy and quick. Best done on Solo, though should be possible in Co-Op as well.

    Load up the mission Exodus on at least Normal difficulty at Rally Point Charlie.

    Wait right where you spawn for the friendly evac Falcons to land near you. After they have landed, kill 2-3 friendly marines on the ground next to you until they become hostile (shooting at you).

    Run to the left Falcon's gunner, and hold 'X' to board it - it should say "Hold X to board Enemy Falcon". Once you board the Falcon, the achievement should unlock. It shouldn't matter if you die while sitting in the Falcon.

    **Though the achievement says a Banshee is required, this still somehow works with the Falcon. I assume this is because it was coded to unlock from boarding any flying "hostile" vehicle.

    I got this on "Tip of the Spear" at Mission point Charlie (least I hope it's Charlie as I've been playing the Campaign straight through on Legendary on a solo run), where you've just crashed and have to make it to the spire to blow it up.

    First, grab a jet pack (and some health if you wish), just in case.

    Second, kill the enemies as you go; i prefer sniping them with the DMR. Grab a Plasma Pistol off of a Grunt, and swap the DMR for a Needler Rifle when your ammo gets low.

    Third, after you get close enough to the Spire (after killing an Elite manning a Plasma Turret) one or two Banshees will dive at you while firing their weapons on you. Avoid the shots and hit the Banshee with a charged-up up Plasma Pistol shot to disable it and make it crash (make sure you're NOT in its path when it does); rush up and hold cn_RB (or whichever button you've set the Action Command for) to hijack the Banshee. After a few seconds of flying it, the achievement will pop.

    Side note: If you want to hold off on getting this achievement, I suggest doing it in the chapter "New Alexandira" and following x1001x Puppys's guide for
