I can't find the best place to Base Jump in order to get the "I Believe I Can Fly" Achievement in Just Cause 2. Any of the mountains I scale widen too quickly in order to me to find a clear path that I can reliably control my descent while also achieving the 1 km drop I need in order to get the achievement.

I've tried it from the "highest point" of Panau Island (and I'm sure it's the highest point because I got the achievement for standing there), but I just wrecked into a tree and/or the ground frequently, because I can't get far enough away from the mountain-side. None of the landmarks I could find (Three Kings Hotel/Towers, Rocket Launch Pads) are high enough, and I am assuming that I cannot just do it from a plane nor helicopter. Though, admittedly, I haven't tried that yet.

Is there more than one place 1 km high that I can fall from in order to get the achievement? Should I be able to do it from any mountain tall enough provided that I control the skydive maneuvering well enough?

The Mile High Club, which can be found in the top right corner of the map, is the most immediate option that comes to mind. Confirmed by Poindexter, thanks!

+1 I can confirm that you can get it from the top of one of the balloons of the mile high club. –  Poindexter Dec 22 '10 at 20:43
    
... that makes... so much sense. Huh. I'll do my best to get back to this tonight. Thanks for your suggestion. –  VxJasonxV Dec 22 '10 at 20:46

I wonder if you can just jump off of an airplane. I have the trophy but don't remember getting it. I do love this game, I'm going back and playing it again at the hardest level and doing 100% everything just because it's so fun to blow s**t up. –  Pickle Pumper Jan 1 '11 at 0:17
    
@Poindexter: And not from just jumping off the platform, it seems. Doh! –  Stuart Pegg Apr 18 '11 at 10:39
