Oi Ryan!
Como Vai?
Tudo Bem Com Você? Yes, i've read something else regarding aerodynamic problems with the low rotor mass on these helicopters. You can download something from the NTSB Web Site regarding a problem they had a few years ago which lead to a cluster of crashes, due to excess speed causing massive blade flutter and ultimately, complete loss of control.
Actually, i am thinking of taking helicopter lessons here in São Paulo, though this would depend on a couple of factors...

As for the license, i gave you the tickets, no? Oh, i bet you misplaced them?! Unfortunately, i have no recollection of the plate number and no documents to check from here. Maybe you can ask Berkeley to search by my name? I'm at my volunteer job in Brooklin now and i have to leave now to go to my language school in Perdizes, since it takes one and a half to two hours from Estaçao Berrini to Estaçao Barra Funda.
Até Mais, Thomas
