    KempoMan's guide works legit, but I've found an easier, quicker way.

    Go to Free Flight and use the first map. Set the starting Altitute to 50 feet and the difficulty to either Realistic or Veteran. Once the map starts, slowly descend yourself without touching any other flight control, just the throttle. Once you touchdown, Touchdown will pop.

    The GlobalizerThis works really well on the map "Lualia, Dhigaal Lost River". The enemies (if any) spawn out of sight of your copter, allowing you to land without even being shot at. It pops right when you touch down, too -- no countdown or anything.

    SmedsI never tried doing it myself; I went for the achievement in Free Flight just to knock it out easily. Good information though.

    This is pretty easy, find a helipad and land on it. There is one on the mission where you have to cover the downed Apache right near where the Apache goes down. Look for a blue H on the map (hit X to see the map).

    I found it easiest to line up from the outside view. I held down on the digital pad and used the right stick to look down, then pressed L3 (press in on the left stick) when I was over it to auto hover. Then just used the right thumbstick to lower myself down gently.

    SilvrgunSuprmanJust a note, I had to dis-engage Autohover just before I landed for the achievement to pop.
