    Just a couple of notes about this achievement to help others.

    You don't need to follow a Flight Plan. Meaning you don't have to land at the airport you choose while plotting a route on the globe menu.

    You can use AutoPilot for flying. I landed manually.

    You can also REFUEL mid air by going to the fuel tab at the top of the screen.

    яNxthYou can have auto-pilot for the whole journey, I didn't even take off or land myself, just left it running and it popped.

    lord of da sithHow do you have it auto take-off and land? I did CNTRL-ALT-X after take off and it flew for me. But it overshot my destination and never landed.

    ZyzdenMy plane also overshot the destination without landing. Is there a separate setting you need to use somewhere to get AI control to do the landing too?

    Bobo daMunkeeThe slower planes will land themselves if the runway is long enough. I've had several land automatically, while others overshoot and continue flying. AI often runs long before setting down so you need a longer runway than you think if you want the AI to land for you.

    Tostie14My plane crashed after flying the 300+ nonstop miles and it gave me the achievement. So no need for it to be a successful landing.

    Ariose999Wow AI is buggy. First forget to land. On the second try crashed badly..
