    Instead of trying in free-roam, do it during Mori's 2nd mission. It starts you way higher then the max you can go in a helicopter, so even if you pull it lets say 4 seconds before you hit the ground, you will easily get it.

    The mission is called "This Ain't Checkers" for anyone wondering.

    Make sure u put the parachute on your back before flying up in the helicopter.
    Get a helicopter and fly up as high as you can, free fall out until you are 1-2secs above the ground deploy parachute and land without dyeing. Achievement will unlock. You unlock the parachute after finishing Yusuf's 2nd mission.

    taffster ukWhen you complete all the base jumps sucessfully the parachute appears in the safehouse, or you can also buy one from Armando's gun truck via your phone. When you complete the game you can also replay missions - mori's mission is "This Ain't Checkers" if you miss it on the first playthrough.

    The MooooooooooI will also point out I got it on the Mori race mission (Mori #2 I think). You may start higher than you normally can reach in a helicopter by yourself or something, because I pulled the shoot well above ground level (I could have gone almost another 10 seconds I bet) and still got the achievement.

    For this achievement you have to fly as high as possible and then freefall the longest possible time to open your parachute in the last moment and land safe.

    This achievement will become obtainable when you have access to the parachute, after the mission "High Dive".

    Make sure you have your parachute on and enter any helicopter, you will find various within Liberty City.

    This is a handy map for locations in Liberty City:

    Then fly as high as possible and watch your altimeter on the radar, also be sure to fly over water, just to be on the safe side.

    I used Yusuf's Buzzard, this one will be unlocked after you finished the storyline. There is also a parachute nearby.

    The most difficult thing is the correct timing.
    Since I just got this achievement, I used a stopwatch to get the exact time.

    The moment you press "Y" to jump out of the helicopter, start your stopwatch. Then only look at that stopwatch and press "A" after 14,9 seconds. Then you should get the achievement when landing in the water.

    I did it nearby where the buzzard spawns but it should work at any place if you fly over water.

    I hope I could help you with this achievement :D.
    Feel free to give your comment if it works or not.
