TBoGT: Adrenaline Junkie

Freefall for the longest possible time. (The Ballad of Gay Tony)  

Make sure you have a parachute and get in a helichopper, go up as high as you can and jump out. Free fall for as long as possible and then release the parachute by press before you hit the ground, land and the achievement should pop up.

You can get this on the mission with Mori where you race in the boat and then car. Just hold off with opening the parachute as long as possible. You may want to restart the mission, (which is when you first jump out the chopper), as you will be a long way behind in the race when you get to the boat.

You get this achievement when you play the last mission with Mori (Bruice's brother), the mission being the two part race where you start in the chopper, sky dive to Liberty Island. You don't even need to be that close to the water, I got this on my first try.

Not gonna guarantee this as I haven't tested it but I tried this a ton of times and finally got it to pop, nothing seemed too special from other attempts but when I was just going through the stats looking for something else I found a stat for "Dist from ground before opening chute" in the Score category, mine is 96.34ft, so it's possible you have to open it 100 feet or lower (the 4 ft wouldn't have made a noticeable difference in my attempts)

This achievement owns me. I simply just can't get it.

I don't get it... My game stat says: "Longest Free Fall: 1760.94 ft" And no achievement? What the hell?

I got it on Mori's mission "This Ain't Checkers" as IHAJE mentioned but the weird thing is I opened my chute pretty early for this achievement o unlock in my opinion...

This one is quite easy once you know how.

Simply go to the helitour and get a helicopter, (make sure you're wearing a parachute.) Then fly up as high as you possibly can, jump out and as you jump out watch the black lines on the radar. (Sorry for the most untechnical term ever. It basically shows how high you are.) As the black line is close to the bottom of the radar open your chute and you should get it pop up straight away.

Easy look at your small map and pull it at the pink line at the bottom

I got this one in the mission where you race Mori in the triathlon but it wasn't the "longest freefall". It was glitched. I don't recommend doing it like how I did but just keep on trying. I think near Happiness Island is a good spot.

As the previous guys commented, I got it on the mission of Mori "This Ain't Checkers", easier than trying alone by self-diving through helicopter at Heli-tours and dying thousand times!
