Remarkable? I would say stupid, at least with passengers.

There is no downwash on the water.

Agree, video looks suspicious to say the least.

Rather well done reflections in the water if it's trickery involved I'd have to say!

Very unlikely to be 'fake'.

The equipment required to do that costs a fortune, not to mention the time involved.

One of the comments claims that the pilot had his licence pulled. Is that true ?

Who knows

That is no safe way to fly. Hate those show off idiots.
Having seen two of those similar pilot characters finally killing themselves (and other occupants) I‘d say take away their licence ASAP.

But a good party trick ( if you don’t mess it up !) . He slightly loses it on the second rev but gets it together for a perfect touch down . Without a passenger and at an air show I would have said that was quite impressive skills . Maybe he learned from Dennis !!

there’s plenty of down wash in the trees though! The down wash on the water will be behind him as he’s moving forward at that point, and we never see aft off the tail whilst he’s over the water.

Remarkable Landing ??

Yes I agree a possible doctored film , no rotor downwash over water ,
look here how it should be for a R44 ;
just search :

Well they would, wouldn't they. Portugese is Brazil's language.

That MAY be a good stick and rudder “pilot”, but he is DEFINITELY an idiot.

Just proves my point - wash is behind and as he slows it catches him. The OP video aircraft has a high airspeed over the water and we never see what’s behind the tail. Once he’s amongst trees the branches are flapping everywhere!

This video has been around a while, and those of us who monitor helicopter online sites have already seen and commented on it. With that in mind, we can joke that this seems to be the "standard" Brazilian approach profile. Climbing decel to a hover over a specific spot with a 720 finish? Pretty good execution of a tricky maneuver! As Nigelh notes above, he did kind of goof it up on the second rotation at the end, but he did recover nicely for a good set-down. Incautious? Yep. Risky? Heck yeah! Would you do it? Oh, you'd probably say, "No way in hell!" And maybe you mean it. But helicopters are capable of some seriously funky, cold maneuvers, and some young, brazen, bold pilots will try them.

Aircraft Banned

A quick research on the Brazilian Civilian Aviation Autority site reveals that the aircraft has been banned (while its annual inspection dates from october).
