There are three criteria that need to be fulfilled for the landings to count.

- The difficulty must be set to Realistic (unlocked by playing the Realistic tutorial)
- The game mode needs to be Capture the Airfields (ranked or player)
- The landing must be successful
- Switch on limited fuel and ammo. Some comments suggest this may have an impact.

A landing is considered successful if you land with nothing tearing off and come to a full stop. I recommend remaining still for a bit to be sure! You can land on anything that is a more or less smooth surface but since the game mode is CTA anyway I suggest you use the runway.

If you choose Britain (Marston) as a map you will start of near a big runway. Since you will be playing on Realistic, avoid any sudden movements of the plane. Handle the stick carefully, only pushing it halfway to make the movements smooth and easy. You should have no problem aligning yourself with the runway!

A push of cn_back will lower your gear. Make sure it is lowered all the way before touching down lightly in an acute angle of less than 10° with no more than 250 kph. Once touched down, cut your throttle and hold the stick back which will break the plane.

As soon as you see the capture symbol, if you actually landed on the airport, you can be assured that you pulled of a successful landing.

I advise going for this achievement while going for Bird Fan. Some planes require you to play/win CTA matches which more or less requires you to capture an airport.

Note: Some comments suggest that not all maps count. If you have problems with unlocking this achievements, you can also try the Sicily map!
