Before attempting this, I advise completing the campaign first, on any difficulty. This will unlock the majority of the single missions, many of which, by completing them, will unlock planes.

The single missions can also be completed on any difficulty. I would advise to complete all of these first as well before even attempting to get Soviet aircaft expert in IL-2 Sturmovik: Birds of Prey, Allied aircaft expert in IL-2 Sturmovik: Birds of Prey, and Axis aircaft expert in IL-2 Sturmovik: Birds of Prey.

Also, boost the online. And yes, I said boost. You will NEVER, EVER unlock everything without boosting. I have run across exactly 3 randoms in my year of on/off boosting this. The community is dead folks. Anyhow, boost the online to unlock all of the planes at the very least before attempting this.

Why do I suggest all of that? If you go for any of the achievements related to winning a mission/match with X faction's aircraft before completing the story or single missions or unlocking them online, and you DON'T keep an accurate list, you're going to end up reusing planes, wasting time.

How to Get This Done Quick
Set up a single match against a single Po-2, with Anti-Aircraft set to Friendly. Any altitude, any map. Start at the top of the list I have posted here, and work your way down. All you have to do is kill the lone Po-2 and you win! That will count as a match. Move on to the next plane, and repeat. The achievement will pop on the stats screen after you have flown the final plane you needed for the unlock.

Bomber Kills
The bombers are equipped with gunners, most of which have one on top of the plane. The easiest method is to fly just below the enemy Po-2 and go just faster than it. As soon as your gunner opens up, try to match the speed and path of the Po-2, and it will eventually gun. If you have no top gunner, or want to switch it up, fly just above the Po-2 until your waist gunner opens up, then match the speed and path of the enemy and it will drop.

Completing this achievement with my method will put you part of the way towards
Test pilot in IL-2 Sturmovik: Birds of Prey

*Do note that you might end up knocking some of these out while boosting the online. You can choose to keep track of these if you'd like, but it is not necessary. It may be best not to keep track; you must complete a single mission with each aircraft anyhow to unlock Test pilot in IL-2 Sturmovik: Birds of Prey.
