    First off, you get the parachutes from Leonardo once you destroy all his war machines. The Machine Gun one is story related but the other 3 show up as a black L on the map after you destroy the Machine Gun.

    I suggest doing the jump during DNA Sequence 8 in the second memory. When you start this memory, you will already be near the top of the Castel Sant'Angelo. You need to jump off the top of the pole that is a bit higher to your left (which also has a Borgia Flag on top). Then just jump off the pole and press X to release the parachute. You should get the achievement right after you start floating. Then just angle yourself back towards the castle to continue with the Memory.

    MinoAceThanks! this helped! But you forgot to mention how you should probably pick some shoots up in case you don't have any so that people like me don't just jump off the thing twice and not understand why they can't fly. :D

    Also i found this was an easy way to also get the "Special Delivery" Achievement, if no one else mentioned it. There a tons of guards standing around for you to float around if you haven't gotten it already. Look for a group of 4 guards on your way down and assassinate them.

    First you must complete all of Leonardo's war machine missions, and then you'll unlock the parachute. You'll be given 5 free from Leonardo, but can purchase them from a tailor if you manage to not have any when going to get this.

    The video shows you most of the route in order to pick up this achievement. This is not my video. Credit goes to youtube user TehVGG

    Flyboy80498This video is ---> NOT <--- confusing. If you watch it you will see what you have to do. Also make sure you read the instructions on how to parachute again BEFORE you try it.

    Shinobi of EdoAbout 90% of this video you do not even need to do. Almost all of it is pretty much just a waste of time. You don't even need to wait until sequence 8-2. Just load up 4-2 and it only takes about a minute to get to the top of the castle from the prison cell area you start in. No offense to its creator, but this isn't a very good walkthrough for the achievement.

    Here is an alternative for those who have completed the game but don't want to travel/climb all the way up there.

    When replaying memories, you can go to the Memory 2 in Sequence 8 called An Apple a Day. After the cut scene that occurs, you'll be placed near the top of the Castle. It cuts out the entire climbing sequence and you can easily get up the pole. However, make sure you've completed all of Leonardo's quests because you cannot get the achievement without doing so.

    Recon1O1Press X when falling will open the parachute. Jump away from the hay stack as it didn't work for me first time. Perhaps a Leap of Faith isn't considered falling. Thanks BDSaint13713
