Aerial Challenges are story mode events that contribute to 100% completion in Grand Theft Auto V. Two contribute to 100% completion of the game.

The categories are Under the Bridge and Knife Flight. There are 50 Under the Bridge challenges, but only 25 of these must be completed to go toward the 100% goal. And only 8 of the 15 Knife Flights need to be completed. Continue reading to find locations for completing all the Aerial Challenges.

Knife Flights

If the player has completed the Flight School challenge, the player should have practiced knife flights. A knife is when the player rolls the plane on its side so the wings are vertical with the horizon. To maintain altitude while in a knife position, activate the opposite rudder to keep the plane from losing altitude. If you rolled to the left and are trying to maintain a left knife, apply the right rudder, the right knife needs the left rudder.

Under the Bridge

Under the Bridge challenges can be completed in any aircraft. However, some aircraft types are easier than others, depending on the bridge or series of bridges. This section identifies half of the 50 Under the Bridge challenges. A successful Under the Bridge execution is when the ground or water beneath the bridge and the bridge itself are untouched as you pass fully underneath.

Trevor is the logical character of choice for completing these challenges since he is the best pilot and is often near a landing strip or helipad where aircraft can be found.
