    These are based off real fights happening in the world .

    some of the green planes are players so if your having trouble finding real planes turn off multiplayer in the flight condition menu.

    click on the world map and zoom in until you see green planes. Then click on the green plane and click create plan. From there fly the plan out and bleep bloop you got 10 gamer score.

    TIP I found a 11 min fly time plan so if your in a rush it get this pick a short flight.

    UPDATE people are saying you can pick any real fight and skip to the final approach phase and land the plane in the hot bar menu to unlock faster.

    raubvogel 89@meochan913, yeah, that stupid A/T is annoying on the 320! You're about to land while adjusting the throttle as necessary and then you hear the engines go full "afterburner" and you're violently trying to push the stupid craft to the runway while trying to get the throttle back to zilch.

    erod550Skipped to Final, had all assists on still and it still popped. Just didn't turn on AI Control to control the aircraft

    scorpian007raubvogel 89, The AT is very different on Airbus vs Boeing. You do not touch the throttle after the initial climb phase, you leave it on the CLB setting and the plane auto-adjusts the speed depending on what is programmed in the FMS or what you have set in the AP. The reason the AT shoots up is to prevent the plane from stalling when it gets close to stall speed - best thing it do is leave it as is, control the speed via the AP. Only time you touch the throttle during landing is when you're 30ft above and about to flare, idle it then. Hope that makes sense

    mmmkeeblerSkipped to final worked for me. Made sure not to modify anything after clicking "Create Flight Plan". Just took a few minutes.

    HXT 71Would be nice if a locked guide was a lot more specific on how to earn the achievement. Seems like guides now days are just slapped together. Please if you are going to make a guide or solution to an achievement make it simple enough that a person that has just installed the game could follow the steps to earn it. The very first comment is proof that the guide was very insufficient. If an achievement says to do something don't skip half of the steps getting to the solution. Would be good if moderators would confirm before locking a solution. If you have tips don't post it as a guide post it in forums as helpful tips. As a community we should flag and report insufficient posts/tips that are given as a guide. The 3 dots next to guide is how to report a solution. It is the communities job to help each other so we don't have guides posted such as this with the first response is a question that may seem to most "without assistance" obvious but it isn't always obvious to everyone and that is what a guide maker is responsible to do. Make it as simple step by step so that even the most basic player can follow the guide. If I had just installed the game and followed this guide I would never get the achievement. The game doesn't default to live conditions and turn off assists etc. Please guide makers take this as constructive criticism as I always appreciate the time individuals take to help others. Again if we as a community take ownership by reporting a guide that doesn't work so it can be made better we will get better guides to work from. Helpful tips can be posted after a guide or in forums to make things easier as long as the guide actually works. Lets all help each other to get the best we can out of our community.

    MrWhite2UWhat the heck is a “HOT BAR”? For the majority of us that don’t speak aircraft lingo try to elaborate more in your descriptions/ “guides”

    Fuzzmeister JThe green planes may take a few minutes to show up. Zoom in on a star airport and wait. Green dots should show up soon.
    -Click Plane
    --Copy Flight Plan
    ---Set AI Control On
    ----Click Navigator Tab and Jump to Approach and wait for the landing.
