Not at all, I imply by reading the previous reports of damaged oil and gas helicopters in Brazil (225, 92, 76) operated by companies owned by large multinational operators who still will not allow foreign pilots work there that accidents are not due to type but to those at the controls who will not accept criticism and think they know better.

There are foreigners flying in Brazil - they either knew or learnt the language as required for the operations offshore - these are not international flights therefore not a need for English speaking according to stated ICAO diferences for Brazil. You can do the same, same as we have to get a license from EASA. Then you can use your evident CRM and knowledge to teach without doubt.

The "Helibras" mention may be an abberation for CHC subsidiary "Brazilian Helicopter Services" which is normally shortened to BHS.

I totally agrée about the 332L2 stalling quicly when offset bleed not engaged at low speed (landing)
About 225, that occurs very often in Africa.
Due to a bad turbulence coming from the different profile of Main Blades
Proof of that : The scoop on engine cowlings at bleed exit was improved by add or a small redan. (At beginning of 225, several engine stall during taxiing with light tail wind and low wheigt
Information given by two friends , one test pilot at AH, the second tech rep at Turbomeca
Sorry for my poor englih writing
