For this achievement, I recommend that you have the following...

Nerd Repellant (gadget)-this will rid the level of any nerds making them a non issue

Freeze-O-Matic (gadget)-if you happen to die really close to the 2km goal for this achievement, this perk will have you sliding an extra few meters

750 meter head start (consumable)-most of the time the 750 meter head start will cause you to go that far while not collecting any coins. I found that every time I used the 1500 meter head start, I would be collecting coins which you need to avoid for this achievement

Final Blast (consumable)-again, good if you need an extra push to the 2km, but there is a chance that this will cause you collide with coins

Revive (consumable)-if after using all of the above items you are still short of the goal, use this to get another life and hopefully get the achievement

You can use machines during your run--thanks to xPut Name Herex and grex9101 for confirming this.
I met the requirements 3 times without the boost and it's not letting me have it.

DwaggieniteCan you confirm or deny if you can hit the machine power ups and still get this achievement if you follow the requirement for not hitting scientists, coins, or spin tokens?

DwaggieniteDon't worry. I just got this achievement missing the machines, so I'm good. :D

xPut Name HerexI can confirm you can use the machines. I used three different machines on my run to 2000m, and I got the achievement fine.

SaltyTONI got the machines as well, should also note that the only consumable I used was the Nerd one.

You can hit the tumbleweeds also, but I died just before 2k, bounced over the distance and caught a spin token as I bounced. Still got the achievement though.

gammatron9000It should be noted that the achievement description is a bit misleading. It says "Fly 2km" but you don't actually have to be flying the whole time. You can touch the floor and ceiling as much as you want.

Also, the Missile Jammer gadget seems to greatly reduce the number of missiles that get generated.

Hamfam9598Each time I used either head start, I ended up collecting coins. I personally found the turbo booster and nerd repellant to work best for me.

SayoricidalDoes this have to be done all in one run?

TwitchyComicI know that I'm pretty late to the party, but I am attempting to finish this game up right now (only need this and RAD) and I have found that using a vehicle made me collect coins. I got the little stomper, and encountered some coins that were low enough that I collected them while running on the ground. Just wanted to add my two-cents and possibly help someone in the future.
