Complete all Under the Bridge and Knife Flight challenges.
There are two types of Aerial Challenges in GTA V; Under the Bridges and Knife Flights. Under the Bridge challenges task you with simply flying under 50 bridges across the world, while Knife Flights require you to “knife” your plane through two buildings. There are 15 Knife Flights located around San Andreas.
If you have tested the Flight School challenges in the Los Santos International Airport, you will already be familiar with what a knife is and how to perform one. If not, a knife is when you roll the plane on its side using the left thumbstick so the wings are vertical with the horizon. To maintain altitude while in this position, hold the opposite rudder ( or ). For example, if you rolled left and are trying to maintain a left knife, hold . It is recommended to perform the Knife Flight challenges in a slow plane such as the stunt plane or a biplane like a crop duster. You can steal a crop duster around Trevor’s McKenzie Field airstrip as they often land there.
Unlike the Knife Flights, Under the Bridge challenges can be completed in any aircraft. You will find out, however, that some aircraft types are much easier than others, depending on the bridge you’re trying to fly under. The Buzzard Helicopter is strongly recommended for these challenges. Also, Trevor is the logical character when going for this achievement because he starts off with the highest piloting skill.
You can find helicopters in Vespucci, and planes at any airport or McKenzie Field (Trevor’s airstrip). You can also purchase planes and helicopters online (elitastravel.com), as well as military helicopters on warstock-cache-and-carry.com. Remember, if either your helicopter, jet, or plane gets significantly damaged, use the quick save and immediately reload the game. Your aircraft will automatically be repaired when you are loaded back into the game. Also be sure to use of quick save before attempting the harder Under the Bridge and Knife Flight Stunts.
I just discovered an in game list of all the locations for the fly unders (this list also includes base jump and stunt jump locations, the second of which you need for the Show Off achievement)
In game if you use the Internet on your phone (up on the D-Pad and last icon on the bottom row) and go to the website "www.junkenergydrink.com", answer "YES", and press "Adrenaline Junkies" at the top of the page you will be shown a list of all the items mentioned above. This list should help with this achievement along with the Show Off achievement.
Okay I got the one I was missing but believe me when I say the bridge was glitched cuz I flew under it once and didn't get it and I was doubtful that I had flown under it before trying at getting the Chievo so flew under it again. By the third time of flying under it I got it. So make multiple attempts if u have to. I'm a pretty good flyer and I know I didn't touch ground or hit anything in te first attempt of getting that glitched bridge cuz I was thinking "holy crap that went smoothly"
the heli cant touch ground when goin under the bridges really easy now knife flight can get pretty hard at some areas here is a tip keep the landing gear on the jet down if you keep crashing it keeps the speed low and the jet will be more stable
To those of you that have 49. Make sure you have done the Rock Cove/Grotto thing on the coast. I thought that was pretty rude tbh. It's not even a bridge.
And it's retarded to state that the bridges can't be done in a heli. That IS the best way to do it. I nailed all 50 easily. In fact a fair few of them NEED to be done in a heli because they are too narrow.
And no glitches at all for me. You guys that are having problems must have done something to cause your game to glitch. Like the hidden package glitch. Or got an illegal copy of the game or something. I haven't experienced a SINGLE glitch throughout the whole game. The only thing is a few texture pop ins. Which is to be expected.
I don't wanna be 'that guy' but if anyone is looking to get all under the bridges & Knife flights please check out my video. its my first few videos and want to know what everyone thinks. check out my channel and tell me if you like! many thanks!

I finally got 50/50 bridges. Trevor starts off with the best flying, so best to use him, AND best to get the buzzard (#20's Bridge video shows where to get it) The smallest chopper and best flight character both matter because ANY blade tips that hit the sides prevent success.
I had 48/50 for a full evening of flying under all the bridges over and over while watching Fringe (good show) and was still at 48/50. This morning I got the buzzard with Trevor and carefully flew under the first 2 bridges I thought might be the problem (no blade tips hitting) and they BOTH succeeded on the first try. Bam.. 50/50.
One thing mentioned on another forum was that flying under two bridges quickly may be a bit glitchy. That poster said he had an issue with the two near the NOOSE headquarters, where they both played the sound but one turned out not to have counted. I found this post when I was 48/50 - and lo and behold, my remaining two were both in that situation - one right by the Vespucci helipad and one by the cab company location. I'm almost 100% sure my first attempt gave me the notification because I checked it off of my printed map as I got each one. Admittedly, I could have messed up with my tracking method, but I really don't think I did.
TLDR version - if you are missing on or two, try going back over ones that are close together or you may have done on th
TLDR version - if you are missing one or two, try going back over ones that are close together or you may have done on the same pass as another bridge, and make sure you only go under a single bridge at a time.
I used the buzzard helicopter! The person who said you can only use planes really needs to get his facts straight before posting BAD info on here. You can also hit the bridge with your propeller tips you just can't land or hit the ground while going under the bridge for them to count. Just wanted to get FACTS out there and not just some bad kids random thoughts.
Do all the knife flights (you can do most of the bridges too) during the Flight School mission where they teach you to barrel roll. That way if you crash you can just hit retry and you will start on the runway! I don't know if I could have handled it any other way LOL. This game is frustrating as hell.
I tried it with the duster as people have suggested. It brought nothing but misery and patches of grey hair. I found it to be much, much easier with the cuban 800 (landing gear put away), it actually stayed up in the air instead of plummeting like the duster. Each to their own i suppose.
