    I will give props to Exit Bloom, as he got me on the right track, but I think I can make things a little quicker...

    Mission 1 - Dragon Rising, is the place to do this solo.

    I did not even bother to the clear the western SAM site. Once the first objective radar is out in the south, and the village mostly cleared (via arty strike), I boosted a jeep (on the road near the entrance to the village), cleared the LZ, and then just drove to the beach west of the western SAM site (you should get a checkpoint along the way - helpful when you mess up). This is were the helicopter is. I did not bother trying to clear this SAM site, as this gave me my targets close to the helicopter...

    Once in the pilot seat, I only needed to go up a bit (up on RS), turn 90 degress to the right (right on RS - still holding up on RS) so I am facing east and then plowed into the gunners (up on LS) at the top of the small hill directly off the beach (a bit to the left of the bunker). No need to fly all the way to the northern objective (lighthouse).

    Took a couple tries (literally two), but no real trouble. The checkpoint along the way spawns you back in the jeep just 10 or 15 seconds from the beach... A great location for a second (or third) try.

    Note: Before you beach your Jeep, set your RoE to "Hold Fire" as you don't want your overzealous squad taking out any potential targets.

    Halderyou don't need to bother with any of the objectives.
    from spawn run straight to the west coast beach. you get a check point half way up the beach.
    hardest thing is actually flying the chopper.
    few fails but i eventually landed on someone :)

    On Mission 1, I took out the SAM sites at the lighthouse then on the west coast (where the chopper is), got in the PLA chopper, flew east to secondary objective 3 (labled "3" on the map), looked for gunfire and nosedived toward said gunfire and achivement unlocked. Admittedly, it took a handful of tries, but that was mostly on account of my learning how to precisely control the chopper.

    This one is also attainable online in a private match with a friend, both anniliation maps have helicopters on it. Have both teams on ROE>Hold fire and try and hit your friend with the blades, it make take a few tries.

    TheBohawkI got this by hovering over my friend I was boosting with and just lowering the chopper and squashing him. Saves getting another chopper if you're trying it with the blades and they break.

    Ryn0 L^ This is the way to do it. Just get in, raise up a bit, have your buddy move underneath, then squash him. Super easy, and no piloting skills needed.
