    Go to Activities and then Landing Challenges. Pick the third famous challenge at JFK airport.

    When the challenge starts:
    -Stay lined up with the runway
    -Hold Down on the D-Pad to lower the flaps. You will start to hear a clicking sound
    -Press B to lower the throttle some but not all the way. The line should be a tiny bit lower than opposite of the yellow bar on the throttle
    -When your speed gets under 200kts Press Right on the D-Pad to lower the landing gear
    -When you to the edge of the runway, press RB+Left on the D-Pad to shut off the engines
    -Then land on the runway when the engines die
    -Bloop! You might fail the challenge, but you know how to complete it with the engines on now!

    FightingMegaFooAchievement might currently be glitched. I've landed a plane several times after shutting off the engines, but it won't pop.

    Fuzzmeister JI did this two days ago and there has not been an update since. Maybe try turning off the engines a little sooner?

    If you're high like me you may accidentally get this. I went to world map and set up a flight from vancouver to victoria, but could not figure out how to disengage parking brake. I picked the Travel To option and went to the last option which is Taxi. When it hit the loading screen the achievement popped.

    I think it's because my engine was never started, but I still made it to victoria.
