Fly Like an Eagle

Jump with the parachute off the top of Castel Sant' Angelo.

The parachute unlocks after all of Leonardos’s war machines have been destroyed. Meet up with him at the usual meeting place (the L icon), and you’ll have access to them. Once you have the parachute, climb to the top of Castel Sant’ Angelo (the top of the flagpole with a red flag) and jump off. This location is at the top of the map indicated by a circular shape. It is within a restricted area. The easiest way to get there is to wait until playing Sequence 8 Memory 2: "An Apple a Day". This mission is after a lengthy cutscene where a female is moaning and crying in a window. Look up and you'll see the flagpole you must climb. Get to the top of it and jump by pressing then press to open the parachute moments after jumping. If you die during this mission, you will spawn at the checkpoint near the window.

You may purchase parachutes by going to a tailor. To check if you have parachutes, press and select Inventory > Supplies > Parachutes. They cost 170 florins each.

Note: Sometimes the achievement won't trigger if you activate the parachute instantly after jumping. You should wait a moment before using it.

I am in sequence 4. When do you have the option to purchase/obtain a parachute?
I haven't came across one yet.

You get the parachute when you destroy all the war machines for Leonardo.

so i got this achievement earlier, the only way to get this is in sequence8
memory 2 just dont go into the window when it asks you too just go straight up to the very top up too the flag pole an climb the flag pole up BUT check your inventory to make sure you have your parachute, i have found this too be the easiest way to do so.
have fun.

you need to use the parachute straight as you jump off... i mean as he's legs are not touching the pole just hit the button opening the parachute.. thats how i've done it... and i hav done it after sequence 9

So this achievement really can't be done after completing the game? Any ideas because I can't seem to do it...

Remember you can replay any Memory you want. Sequence 8 Memory 2 is recommended because you start already near the top of Castel Sant' Angelo. You must open the parachute as soon as you leap off the flag pole.

You can do it after the game. But the Fucking building is super hard to climb. Took me like two hours.

I beat sequence 9 and then went to get the parachute, can I still go back to sequence 8 memory 2 and use the parachute to get this achievement?

Nice easy one! I have compleated the game and still got the achievement. To activate the parachute just hit X when you jump. Took me a while to figgur that out!

Ehh... how do you climb the tower? I've got a parachute and I'm aiming for the chievo!

Like people have said the tower can take an age to climb and Ive tried about four* times now and the achievement just won't pop.

*admittedly the first time I tried it I made the schoolboy error of not checking to make sure I had parachutes equipped

I had the problem where it said that I had 15 parachutes through the menu but neither the small icon in the bottom left corner nor would it prompt me to press X when it should have right after I jumped. I replayed the Apple a Day mission several times and plummeted to my death several times, then one time I jumped off of the top and hit the X button like crazy and the chute opened (even though the icon was STILL not on the screen). I made sure to have my bare hands equipped when I did jump, so just keep trying it and maybe you'll get lucky too b/c I was about to bid this achievement farewell.

i just did it, already beat the game, i was on top of the flag pole, facing the bridge (idk if that matters) and as soon as i jumped off i pressed X and it popped up right away.

you get parachutes from one kind of store and make sure you go all the way up. its a pain to climb up again

You are the person no one will ever want an achievement guide from. To make an achievement guide requires you actually knowing how to make one, if you require telling someone else should/will have done it...and imo thank god for that, also its spelt achievement.

@#26 by mttvnkrk
No you dont, you gain the parachute from da vinci, you buy EXTRA from a store, if you read any of the comments above you would see that and i hope anyone else that reads this doesnt look at your comment only cause its misleading.

So i tried from outside sequence 8 memerory 2, they close off some of the old ways up, i got annoyed and went and redid the dna sequence, got to the top in about 2-3 mins. I will say the repeating dialogue and crying made it almost unbareable....

i had to go

Comment #28 by Killerchronic
Tuesday, June 28, 2011 @ 10:11:22 PM

Hmm, so it cuts off after x amount of chars without saying.....nice -.-

here is the rest:

i had to go back and kill them, just to make a point lol im sure the game didnt care but my fucking god that was annoying "give me the *****, blah blah", "its mine nor yours" rinse repeat.

Thought it would stop after i was out of hearing distance....i mean a castle wall, bridge and river i think would be enough distance....but i guess not :(

Anyway just got this done, first time, technically, thanks to the advice of replaying a dna sequence.

You can do it in the fourth sequence as soon as you get the parachute. Just did it, pain to get up there. Spammed more asssassin kills and double excecution's on my way up. If you're after the 500m parachute challenge heading towards the bridge will net you about 185m.

I'm curious now, I've just tried this about a dozen times and it never popped,
does it have to be done on a replay or can it be done while doing the mission?

be sure to choose your bare hands, if you press down on D-pad the parachute symbol flash for a moment

I tried the method of taking the assassination contract to kill the papal guards to get into the Castel Sant'Angelo without triggering the campaign mission. Twice I climbed all the way to the top of the flag pole at the top of the castle and twice my stupid f'ing parachute wouldn't open and went splat on the stupid castle. WTF!?

Yes, you can definitely get this achievement at the end-game; I just unlocked it.

Like other posters have said: Climbing this building is hard! I went up one time and jumped off but didn't know it had to be off of the flagpole. I went up again and unlocked it as soon as I jumped off. Took me a while, but doable. I also got the double-assassination DLC achievement from the very same jump!

Replay Sequence 8 Memory 2, it is the easiest way to unlock it.

And you can do it after you beat the game

#27 and #28, we were content with ignoring the fruitcakes who dont know about the game. No need to watch these forums and critique 2 different people before you tell us exactly what everyone before you already explained.

1 year later lol

You have to do it immediately, if you wait more than a half a second the prompt goes away and you'll just fall to your death and have to do that ~20 minute climb again. Learned that the hard way
