The best cars to use for this achievement are the Ryback Coyote (Class B) and the Cobretti Pursuit (Class A). Both are excellent at drifting (rating of 9).

You'll get the Coyote first, with the Pursuit being one of the last vehicles to unlock. The Pursuit is faster and has better acceleration than the Coyote, but the Coyote has more strength, making it a bit easier to control during shockwaves.

The key to ending this event quickly is to build up your Power Play meter to red, and then hit the helicopter with a level two Power Play (B button) when the prompt shows up. Each successful missile deflection with a maxed-out Power Play meter takes off four life bars from the chopper; you'll have to hit it four times to destroy it. Doing it with low-level power plays takes too long, since these only take off one life bar.

To build up lots of Power Play energy, drift every chance you get; as mentioned, the Coyote and the Pursuit are great at drifting and you'll fill the meter really fast when you combine that with avoiding waves of missiles. When the helicopter icon glows red, hit B as quickly as you can.

Good episodes to get this achievement on are Episode 6 and Episode 8. Episode 8 (the storm drain) in particular is good because large sections of the track are very wide open (making it easier to avoid missiles) and there are a few really long corners to drift around.

For what it's worth, I got this achievement on Episode 6's Air Revenge sequence. Using the Pursuit I beat the target time by nearly six seconds, and that's even after getting blown up once.
