You may find this challenge difficult to get right at first. It may require a few attempts as you get the angles right so just be patient.

Jackson wants you to do an emergency landing on a bridge. A checkpoint is placed at the far end of the bridge, and your task is to land and stop as close to it as possible. To get the Gold, you need to stop the plane pretty much on top of the checkpoint. There is a distance marker in the bottom right corner to tell you how far from the checkpoint you are. For the Gold, you need to be within 10 feet which equates to pretty much on top of the checkpoint.

As soon as you get control of the plane, descend to the first checkpoint and keep the nose pointed so you aim to be landing at the start of the bridge. Decelerate as you descend but not so much that the engine cuts out. Take your time with the landing because there is no time limit to worry about.

Aim to touch down at the start of the bridge. This will give you some time to brake and stop at the checkpoint.

When you near the bridge, even up a little so you’re going to skim the bridge. Use your rudders to avoid hitting the walls on either side and slam the brakes on so you get control of the plane enough that you can still move it to the checkpoint. Drive within 10 feet of the checkpoint to get the Gold.
