Your first step in the game will be learning to fly an aircraft which will earn you the Fledgling Career achievement and allow you to progress further into the game, hence it cannot be skipped.
Once your are in free mode and are allowed to do whatever you please it is recommended that the first achievement you get working on is "Pentacontacache" as this requires you to collect the Aerocache of the day on 50 different days, also before purchasing any dlc you will need to head to the hanger and download a free preview of an aircraft.
Thereafter the game can really be played in whatever order you want,
if you don't plan on buying any dlc then it is mostly miscellaneous achievements you will need with the exception of "Stearman Landing Master". If you have purchased dlc I first recommend completing the main missions as these will teach you advanced aircraft maneuvers and how to fly different aircraft, there after you should complete the miscellaneous achievements for instance the ones requiring you to do job's, finding the aerocaches and landing at each ad every airport.
Finally you will have to complete the challenges to gold. the challenges at the best of times can be quite tricky but the tip is to keep repeating them over and over again until you get the hang of it.
As far as setting for the game go normally you will want increased stability turned on, with the exception of the "Inverted", "dizzy" and "Aerobat" achievement this will make the game much easier
For the challenges it is recommended that you have your setting turned to the best your pc will comfortably run the game at as it will make spotting the centre of runways easier however you should also have scenery density turned down to low as this will remove objects such as trees which you could crash into and can give you better angles of approach.
Once you have done all of those you should have 1000 achievement points.
For there help in creating this guide I would like to thank
http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...3/-nqMGQ==.jpg Fledgling Career 5 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png
Complete Tutorial 1: Flight Essentials.
When you first sign into the game it will take you into the tutorial, where it will teach you how to fly a plane, simply complete this and the achievement is yours.
Note: This achievement can glitch, i.e it says it has unlocked but when you check your gamercard outside of the game it is still locked, for a potential fix for this go here
http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...3/-5p0ig==.jpg Crashtastic 5 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png
1st catastrophic crash.
When your in the air simply point the aircraft straight towards the ground and you'll crash, chances are though you'll unlock this with normal progression.
http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...3/+jifcw==.jpg Download a Free Preview 15 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png
Download an aircraft preview from the hangar.
Before you download any dlc go to the hanger, there it will have several planes including all the ones available from dlc, click on one of the planes currently unavailable to you then select download free preview, once the download finishes the achievement will unlock.
http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...3/+9hn4A==.jpg Aerocache Neophyte 10 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...3/+BmWxg==.jpg Aerocache Hound 35 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png
Find any 50 Aerocaches.
To locate an Aerocache it will first help if you enable the Aerocache tracker, click missions then click Aerocache hunt to find a list of all the Aerocaches that can be located, click on an Aerocache and the first thing you should take note of is the description i.e is it located at the airport, on a beach near the sea or elsewhere meaning it will be inland. Then if you wish you can use Bing to help you narrow down it's location faster, click the link then click on Bing maps and hopefully the location will be placed however it is not always accurate and sometime has difficulty finding it. Finally you should click start hunt which will take you to the nearest airport, if the location of the Aerocache is at the airport i suggest you exit the aircraft with "E" and run around to collect, otherwise take not of how close the Aerocache is and click "M" to bring up the map, zoom in then right click the approximate distance the Aerocache was away in any direction, then hit "M" again (note if you found the location on Bing click there), once you have done that the Aerocache will either be closer or further away, if it is close you have clicked in the right direction and you should go on the map again and right click nearby until you can place the aircraft within 1km of the Aerocaches from there it should be easy to find and fly through, if the Aerocache is further away then click in the other direction and it should get closer.
http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...3/+z6CyA==.jpg Pentacontacache 50 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png
Find 50 Aerocaches of the Day.
Note: while this achievement may be possible without dlc it will take a much longer time for them to come up therefore it is recommended that you buy the Hawaiian Adventure pack to make this much quicker
Select Activities then select Aerocache hunt will bring up a list of all the Aerocaches that can currently be collected, the top one of the list will have a timer next to it is the Aerocache of the day of which there is only 1, find this on 50 different days and the achievement is yours.
See "Aerocache Hound" for more information on finding Aerocaches.
http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...3/+t56Ww==.jpg Fly Buddy 30 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png
Fly multiplayer with a Microsoft Flight Team member or with anyone who has earned this achievement.
Select multiplayer then select quick match to join a game, the achievement should pop within the first couple of seconds of joining if someone in the lobby has it, if not quit out and search again, alternatively select multiplayer then select settings, change your session type to public this will allow random people to join your game, then if someone with the achievement joins you will get it.
http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...3/-uN11g==.jpg G-LOC 10 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png
Reach 12 positive G's.
The RV-6A or P51 are recommended for this achievement.
First you will need to climb to about 10,000 ft above ground level, then put your plane into a dive with the throttle set to full, once you near the ground pull the aircraft nose up out of the dive and the achievement will unlock.
http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...3/-MJ8Yw==.jpg Redout 10 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png
Reach 6 negative G's.
The RV-6A or P51 are recommended for this achievement.
First you will need to be 3,000 ft above ground level, then put your plane into a 45 degree dive, once there you need to invert the plane by holding left or right till the aircraft is upside down once it's there you will need to pull the plane up to the sky whilst keeping it inverted, press up arrow (or the same control that you would use to make the plane dive if it were the right way up) and the achievement will pop.
http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...3/+0GeLw==.jpg Inverted 30 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png
Accumulate 1 hour of inverted flight.
Inverted flight it when your flying upside down, you need to do this for a whole hour but it does not need to be done in one go, you can check your progress for this achievement by heading to pilot profile then under flight time it will have a section for inverted.
While this can be done in the Stearman the RV-6A or P-51D Mustang are recommended as they are much easier to keep inverted.
To invert your plane I recommend you first set your Camera to Freelook with F11 this will make it easier to tell when you are fully inverted and also when the aircraft is stable, then be at least 1000ft above the ground and the throttle is at 100%, if you are using it disable the mouse by hitting SPACE then hit either left or right arrow till you are inverted, you may go to far and start to turn back around if this happens just keep tapping the left and right arrows to you are perfectly upside-down, once you are there just keep tapping the up arrow to keep yourself at the same height.
http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...3/+qFmvA==.jpg Inverted Down Low 30 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png
Fly less than 10 feet above the ground or water, upside down, at over 150 knots.
While this may be possible in the Stearman the RV-6A or P-51 are recommended as they are much quicker and much easier to control when inverted.
I recommend inverting the plane first at a higher altitude above the water then letting it's altitude decrease slowly by tapping the up arrow but not as much as you would if you wish to keep it at the same height, let it's altitude slowly decrease until you hit the 10 feet and then level out and the achievement will unlock.
http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...3/-wONRQ==.jpg Dizzy 30 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png
Complete 5 consecutive spins.
First of all to make this easier you will need to go to options > Gameplay and turn Increased stability off, then select the Stearman and climb to at least 4,000ft above the ground, once there put the throttle down to 0% and keep the plane level till you stall, then hit increase the throttle a bit (35% -40%)and keep hold of "A" this should start you spinning, spin 5 times then hold D to level yourself and the achievement will unlock.
Note: this can also be completed during the mission Stearman Aerobatics.
http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...3/UPuokLE=.jpg Silent and Deadly 30 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png
Successful landing with empty fuel tanks.
Go to the hanger select your favorite plane to land and empty it's fuel tank. then go to the map and click free flight, right click on the map near an airport then click the circle around your plane to change it's direction, change the direction so it is the facing in the direction of the runway (little white line on smaller airports icon), once there hit "M" this should start you in midair facing the runway, then all you have to do is land and slowdown and the achievement will unlock.
http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...3/UP3Lim4=.jpg 32K 40 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png
Fly to over 32,000 feet above sea level.
Note: while you do not need it the P51 will make it much easier to gain this achievement, to make it go faster start a free flight with full fuel over one of the higher points on Hawaii, then open the throttle to full and put the nose of the aircraft in a steady climb (so that your speed is constant but your altitude is increasing), leave your pc alone for 10 min come back and you should have the achievement, it is recommended that you do the "Mach 1" achievement straight after completing this one.
Alternatively FiReStOrM^ has created a save file which can be downloaded here
It is a zip file and you will need to extract all 3 files contained within to the same place your saved free flights are saved in it should look something like C:/Users/Username/My Documents/Flight/Shared/Free Flight
After saving all 3 files power up flight and go to saved flight's load the 39k PT-17 Stearman one and the achievement will unlock.
http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...3/UPwrcv0=.jpg Backwards 50 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png
Land a fixed wing aircraft backwards
This achievement has been known to randomly unlock, however your best chance to unlock it normally will be Maule landing challenge 6, once you get to the other side of the observatory, turn the plane around and fly into the wind wait till you pass it again and decrease the power of the aircraft to less than 75%, because of the strong wind you should start flying backwards, now land on the ground and the achievement will unlock.
http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...3/UP-qg9s=.jpg Stearman Landing Master 40 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png
Earn gold on all Stearman landing challenges.
The stearman has a total of 6 landing challenges which are judged by the following criteria
Runway centreline is the easiest to get full marks on, just line up your approach with the centre of the runway quite far out, on the Stearman some of the runways can be quite hard to locate until your very close to them therefore it will take a couple of tries before your comfortable with the direction it is facing.
Once your lined up with the runway your power should always be cut to idle this will allow you to slow down and glide in.
Vertical speed is all about how fast your descending, so how quickly your altitude is decreasing, the slower the better if your descending too fast you may need to put the nose up so you descend slower and even add a bit of power, not too much that you start going up again but enough to slow your rate of decent to near 1ft per second near the runway.
Horizontal speed is the indicated speed you are travelling, ideally you want to be traveling at 55kts or less when you land, cutting the engine to idle a while before you land will help slow you down, as will putting the nose of the aircraft up and landing into the wind.
http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...3/UPsxaX4=.jpg Tormentor 20 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png
Frighten 10 or more passengers while flying jobs.
To fly a job click on any airport on the map then click Job's board on the right and look for one which involves passengers, to frighten the passenger during the job you must get the green tick on the right to turn into a red exclamation mark !. A simple way of doing this is either to perform aerobatics in flight or point the nose at the ground to make them think their going to crash and pull out at the last second then complete the flight, while most jobs require a larger plane like the Maule, the $100 hamburger can be completed in the icon, though it will take 10 of these for the achievement to unlock as you can only take 1 passenger at once.
http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...3/UP-Zusc=.jpg XP Grinder 75 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png
Exceed 500,000 total XP.
To unlock this achievement you need reach 500,000 xp, you gain xp in several ways including
For information on finding Aerocaches see "Aerocache Hound".
You should gain this achievement with natural progression throughout the game however if you don't probably the fastest way of gaining extra xp is to complete one of the earlier landing challenges say Stearman Landing challenge 1 over and over.
DLC: Hawaiian Adventure Pack Cost: 1600 MSP Achievements: 7 Points: 295
http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...3/UP6Tgoc=.jpg Aerobat 40 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png
Complete the Aerobatics Competition mission.
You will unlock this mission once you have reached lvl 11 and completed the Stearman Aerobatics mission, simply complete it for the achievement to unlock.
I recommend using the RV-6A for this mission, the missions requires you to perform 8 aerobatic maneuvers inside a box above the runway however to complete the mission you only need to attempt a maneuver not complete it once you have completed a maneuver you can exit the box and it will tell you to land giving you the achievement.
http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...3/UP4Ke0g=.jpg Icon A5 Landing Master 30 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png
Earn gold on all Icon A5 landing challenges.
The icon A5 has 6 landing challenges to be completed 3 of which require the "Hawaiian Adventure Pack" to play.
The first 3 challenges are judged on
500 points are available for each criteria, the first 3 challenges require you to score 1,450 for gold, the last 3 require 950.
For the landings you should line up your approach from along distance away then cut the power to idle and glide the aircraft in, remember to put the gear down "G" on the first 3 challenges, ideally you should be descending at 1ft per second near the ground and traveling at less than 55kts. For the water landing ensure you land with enough time to slow the aircraft down before you reach land otherwise it will class it as having crashed your aircraft.
http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...3/UPzNl9U=.jpg RV-6A Landing Master 40 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png
Earn gold on all RV-6A landing challenges.
These landings are very similar to the first 3 of the Icon A5 and are judged on the same criteria, see "Icon A5 Landing Master" for more information. The only real difference is the weather, the earlier challenges have strong winds fortunately most of these are in roughly the same direction as the runway so by landing into the wind it is actually helpful in slowing you down, for challenges 5 and 6 you will need to make an ils approach through the fog, for these challenges i recommend you stay above the fog layer till you near the airport as this will make it easier to locate, then line yourself up and start to descend if you start to pick up speed cut the throttle to idle and lower the flaps with "F5" this shall help slow you down, take note of the height of the runway when you near the target height level out and try to descend as slowly as possible onto the runway.
http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...3/UPp7UT4=.jpg Gold Rush 40 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png
Earn gold on Hilo, Windfarm, and Ford Island Gold Rush challenges.
For theses challenges you will have to fly through a series of stars and collect all of them for a gold within the 3:30 time limit, i recommend using the Icon A5 as it is extremely maneuverable and slow enough to avoid hitting other objects such as buildings. For the first 2 challenges the quickest method is probably to circle the level collecting as many points as you can on each pass, for the last one it is recommended that you first collect all the rings around the buildings near where you start, then move onto the ones next the the battleship followed by the ones at the bridge and finally the ones at the road and between the rows of trees.
http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...3/UPhaWIs=.jpg Military Brat 20 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png
Land at all military airfields in Hawaii.
You will earn this achievement while going for "Hawaii Explorer", however if you wish to do it first the airfields you need to land at are
http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...3/UPubqa0=.jpg Hawaii Explorer 50 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png
Land at all Hawaiian airports.
There is a total of 36 airport you need to land at for this achievement, Note: Bellows AFB (XBEL) is disused and therefore is not needed.
For this achievement chose your favorite plane to land the click free flight, zoom in on the map and right click near an airport, then left click on the plane and click and drag the circle to it is facing in the same direction as the airports runway (little white line on each airport) hit "M" and it will start you in the air with the runway lined up in front of you, simply land and it will class as a landing, once done hit M again and move onto the next airport, i recommend doing each island in turn and moving round the airports on each island in a clockwise direction so you don't miss one, also it may be helpful after each one to check your player profile and see whether:
http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...3/UP45QlQ=.jpg Mission Accomplished 75 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png
Complete all Hawaii missions.
There are a total of 9 missions in the game simply complete all of them and the achievement is yours.
The missions are:
For the fly-in-events mission you can just have a go at one of the challenges and then exit and it will complete the mission you don't have to do them all.
DLC: Maule M-7-260C Cost: 1200 MSP Achievements: 2 Points: 60
http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...3/UPkQYMs=.jpg Flying Zoologist 20 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png
Fly light cargo missions and deliver 6 varieties of animals.
Cargo missions will become available on the job's board once you have reached lvl 5, once there you will have to deliver all 6 different varieties of animals they are:
http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...3/UPjwmFg=.jpg Under the Radar 40 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png
Transport 4 tons of clandestine cargo with at least 80% cargo security.
Clandestine cargo missions will come available at lvl 9 and are only available at airports without a tower (purple ones on the map) if there are none available try shutting the game down and restarting it as this will reset the jobs. Unlike other cargo missions Clandestine ones require you to keep the aircraft bellow 1000ft above the ground therefore it is recommended that instead of travelling over islands you travel round the coast of them, whilst this will take longer it will also mean you can keep an accurate eye on you height by staying below 1,000ft it also means you are unlikely to stray above it accidentally as there will be no valleys beneath you which can rapidly increase your height off the ground, you will also occasionally need to stay clear of other aircraft.
Also note unlike other cargo missions you cannot skip ahead in these so make sure you have the time to complete the flight, though if you can get the plane to stay level when travelling across water you can leave it flying for a bit and come back later.
You have to deliver 4 tons in total or 3628kg, it is recommended that you try to find a mission delivering 800kg or more in less than 50nm also once you have completed a mission you can chose play again and replay the mission rather than having to find another one.
DLC: North American P-51 Mustang Cost: 640 MSP Achievements: 2 Points: 60
http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...3/UPpIaCI=.jpg Mach 1 20 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png
Exceed Mach 1.
You can get this achievement right after you unlock "32K", once at that height just put the P51 in vertical dive with the throttle at 100% and it will unlock once you go past the sound barrier.
If your having trouble with "G-Loc" as soon as you get this achievement pull the nose of the aircraft up and that achievement will also unlock
Alternatively FiReStOrM^ has created a save file which can be downloaded here
It is a zip file and you will need to extract all 3 files contained within to the same place your saved free flights are saved in it should look something like C:/Users/Username/My Documents/Flight/Shared/Free Flight
After saving all 3 files power up flight and go to saved flight's load the Mach 1 one and the achievement will unlock.
DLC: Hawaiian Adventure Pack AND Maule M-7-260C Cost: 2800 MSP Achievements: 3 Points: 90
http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...3/UP0tb0Y=.jpg Maule M-7-260C Landing Master 50 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png
Earn gold on all Maule M-7-260C landing challenges.
The maule landing challenges are in someways similar to the icon ones and are judged on the same criteria (see "Icon A5 Landing Master" for more information) the exception being number 3 is judged on touchdown instead of soft landing (which is the same thing anyway) and 5 and 6 are only judged on soft landing and side skid, that is where the similarities end however. Most of the maule challenges have either extremely windy weather, inappropriate surfaces to land on or both always follow these pointers though and they will help you get gold
Deliver cargo to Princeville Airport on the island of Kauai.
Click on the job's board of various airports untill you find a cargo mission going to Princeville (you will need to be at least lvl 5), complete that mission and the achievement is yours (note it has to be a cargo mission not a passenger mission.)
http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...3/UP1Sc6E=.jpg Maui Bound 20 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png
Transport happy and satisfied passengers to Kahului airport on Maui.
Click on the job's boards of various airports till you find one that involves delivering passengers to Kahului (you will need to be at least lvl 11), to complete the mission you will need to keep your passengers happy, this will involve keeping the aircraft level except when you need to turn which you should do gently, and landing as softly as possible for more information on this see "Maule M-7-260C Landing Master" also landing will be easier if your not overloaded so make sure you only take a little more fuel that will be needed do remember though the range of your aircraft is given in km and the distance of the job in nm, as a rule 1 nm = 1.852 km.
DLC: Alaskan Wilderness Cost:1200 MSP Achievements: 6 Points: 275

Earn gold on 7 landing challenges from the Alaska Wilderness Pack.
There is a total of 9 landing challenges in Alaska, 6 can be completed without the need to purchase additional dlc however the other 3 will require you to own the RV-6A from the "Hawaiian Adventure Pack" the "Maule M-7-260C" and the "P-40" however only one of these will be needed for the achievement since you only need to complete 7 of the 9 challenges.
Landings are judged on a variety of criteria including
http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...3/UPsU5E4=.jpgNorthern Exposure 25 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png
Deliver cargo or passengers to Wiley Post (PABR) at Barrow, Alaska.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...3/UPk17fs=.jpgCenti-Explorer 100 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png
Land at 100 different airports around the world.
Simply land at 100 different airports see "Hawaii Explorer" for more information on the quickest way to do this if you already have that achievement then you will only need 64 airports from Alaska
For the Flying Zoologist achievement the animals I found to transport are:
On a side note I believe this achievement may be bugged. When I check my achievement status in-game it says that I unlocked it on March 3 but it will not update to my profile on Xbox.com or my console. There seems to be a problem updating it from the client to Microsofts database. I have emailed them about it and hopefully they fix it when they fix the 500k achievement. I will post back when (if) they get back to me.
For the G-LOC and Redout achievements I flew to around 5000ft then put my plane into a nosedive. I then pulled back until I was straight up and pushed into a nosedive again. It only took a couple times of doing this for them to unlock. I used the P51.
For 32K and Mach 1 achievements you can get them both at the same time. Fly the P51 to over 32K for the first one then nosedive until you hit Mach 1. I saw this posted in another thread and it worked great for me although I can't remember who posted it.
For the Under The Radar achievement I found it can be very hard to find Clandestine Cargo. The best method I have found so far seems to be to change the weather conditions and check all the airports. The purple dots on the map seem to have them more often than blue but I have seen them at the blue ones as well. If there are none at the airports just change the conditions in Free flight and check again. I am not sure if there is a better way to get them to show up this is just a method I found seems to work half decently. For the 80% cargo security part just try to avoid pulling a lot of Gs and go for soft landings.
For Mission Accomplished as soon as you download the Hawaii pack it unlocks a bunch of new missions under career. Just complete these. They are fairly straight forward and most do not take very long although the one that says it takes an hour took me almost 3 so be prepared before you start that one. You should also get the Aerobat achievement as you are completing the missions, it is one of the new ones.
For Princely Cargo and Maui Bound there will be random missions on the Job boards that will allow you to do these. Just scan through the boards until you see one with the right destination. I found a couple for each and just picked a random one so I don't think it has to be a specific mission to get them. You can skip during the flight and still get these so don't worry about it if it is a long flight.
Hope this helps your guide. You have helped me get a couple so I thought I would return the favor.
Not quite sure if I'm just being silly or if the achievement is actually buggy, but I can't seem to unlock Mission Accomplished properly. I've done every mission and the in-game achievements list shows it as unlocked, but my Xbox profile doesn't.
By the way: how do I recognize clandestine cargo on the jobs board?
Not sure about Mission Accomplished. It unlocked fine for me but I am having similar problems with the Zoologist one. I have emailed Microsoft Flight so hopefully they will get back to me soon.
If you look at the board you will see them labeled as Light Cargo, or Passenger Charter, etc. Clandestine will be labeled as Clandestine. Also in the description it shows as unknown cargo. The picture next to it seems to have a slightly red-ish hue to it as well (at least to me it looks like that)
When you do find one make sure you go at night as you get a very large XP boost for doing it then and try not to quit. You can restart if you mess up but if you exit the job it disappears off the list and you have to hunt again to find another one. So make sure you plan ahead and load enough fuel on board.
Most of the ones I have found have very short takeoffs and landings so try to bring just enough fuel for the flight. I go over by about 20-30km of extra just to make sure I have enough but don't take too much or you might not get off the ground before hitting trees.
You should probably replace those tiles with the actual tiles. The color of them are blue not gray. So as you unlock them you should replace them. ;)
i would but seen as there not currently updated the achievement list it's kind of hard atm and i can't be bothered doing each one individually from xbox.com :D
the guide prob won't be submitted till they release a patch for some of the many achievement glitches, i have 2 acheves sitting there that are unlocked but aren't i know for some it's more
Or maybe I just didn't look well enough. ;D
finally got a 3rd clandestine cargo mission to turn up, no idea how but you need to be at least lvl 9 which has now been added to the guide
Done everything possible for princely cargo and Maui bound and I get no achievement every time.
i may just make a list of non glitched achivevements, it may be easier :D
clandestine cargo missions look like the above image. once you finish one you can hit play again instead of looking for another one. if you cant find any on the job boards restart your game to update them. dont bother checking every airport only the pink ones will have them. i recommend something at about 50 miles and 700-900 pounds. when you are choosing how much fuel you want to take its about 10 miles per 1% its good to take about 5% extra. you can check your progress under the pilot profile>cargo>clandestine cargo at 8,000lbs the achievement will unlock.
cheers, retarting the game prob makes more sensethink in the description of the zoolagist one i explain exactly how much fuel you'll need, you'll need a little more for clandestine though because of how you fly it (usually not in a straight line :D)
Where is the Roadmap?
but yeah the guide is incomplete roadmap was a guess till i could get the actuall timing figurred out
Argh, I had 1300kg of Clandestine Cargo registered, flew three 900kg flights without getting caught and currently have 2500kg of cargo registered? WTF, how is this even possible? That's 1,5 hours wasted fora mere 1,200kg increase. :\
Note sure if this is a glitch or whatever, but it's bloody annoying.
For G-LOC and Redout: My 8 year old brother accidently figured out how to get both of these with the Icon. Hit something. It's really obvious. Hit something under you (like the edge of a building) for one achievement and above you for the other (like a bridge) or for both, someone in multiplayer.
Maui Bound is glitching for me, I unlocked it a couple days ago, I finished the mission, and it came up on the bottom of the screen, when I went to achievements it wasnt there, since then, every time I go on, its not there, its still locked, anyone else having this problem?
EDIT: I did the job again, and this time when I finished it did not show up that I had unlocked it at the bottom of the screen, it did not show up in my achievements, its also not on xbox.com
in piolt profile what does it say in career under cargo section?
Daily aerocaches are working again. You should update the guide.
Is it possible to do the backwards landing achievement on water?
Alaskan wilderness DLC has been release with 6 new achievements worth 275 points
