I found the easiest map to get this on is the Hawaiian map (woman on the menu has Hawaiian flowers on), which is the one with two helipads. I nearly got 250 on this map easily. My reason for this map is that it does not get hectic/crowded until you get to about 80-90 planes landed.

My general strategy would be to take the yellow planes around the bottom helipad (when possible), take the helicopters to the closest helipad just to get them out of the way (they're super slow and can get in the way of faster jets and planes), and focus on the large pink jets when things gets crazy. Always make them your priority when they appear, as it's easy to have a crash with a slower plane if you lose track of them for a second. Also be aware of landing them in front of the smaller pink planes, since the larger jets are faster and may catch up to the smaller jets before they land. Also, it may seem like common sense, but always take the shortest path when possible, and try to avoid unnecessary wide turns and loops unless it's to avoid collisions. Also, you can go for the 10 minutes on a single round achievement when going for this, so don't use the fast forward function when going for this!

As I said above, it should be smooth sailing until about 85 landed, when you will get a sudden rush of large pink planes. Get past this one tricky patch, and you should be good for the cheevo.
