First off all I'd like to thank you, Gary and all the Online Helicopter Ground School staff.
Your help was incredible, all the videos, the comments and every little effort you have made to create this awesome platform.
I'm commercial helicopter pilot from Brazil and I used the HOGS to help me out with my conversion from ANAC (Brazil) to CAA (New Zealand). HOGS was really helpful as I could grab the vocabulary (English) necessary to explain every single maneuver, theory question, pre-flight and all other subjects involving helicopters. The main problem for me was to be able to explain everything in English fast and precise as we have to act as a pilot. Remember that we speak Portuguese in Brazil. HOGS gave me the opportunity to remember all the theory as well as the English vocabulary and more important the easiest way to memorise and explain all of that.
I've completed the conversion around 6 months ago but my life has been busy and I forgot completed to reply this email and tell you about my achievement. I'm really proud of my self, the whole process has taken almost an year of dedication and hard work.
My next goal is to convert my helicopter commercial licences (ANAC or CAA) to FAA as my wife's got a job offer in the USA and we are moving next year. I'll start using HOGS more often now and be more participating.
Let me ask a question, have you guys any experience with this processes of converting foreign licences to FAA?
Please see the photo attached. This pic was taken the day I've done my check ride here in New Zealand. Be free to put my pic on the Wall of Frame.
That you very much for creating such a nice toll for helicopters pilots!
Hope to meet you in person one day.
