The disaster that is JHAS

What is the industry coming to when a two bit construction company can waltz in and make a mockery of Australian aviation.

I feel for the poor souls from Ansett administration that were sucked into the John Holland debacle. These forums were once the jousting room for earlier ambitions of people who believed it could be done.

Well history is unfolding in front of our very eyes as they show the world just how badly it can be done. Where is the industry regulator in all of this? AWOL as usual. From what I have seen and heard it is a return to bondage and slavery! (that might be a little over the top, but you get my point).

They are bleeding engineers quicker than the immigration department can approve their Visa's. What next is on the horizon for them? Maybe into medicine, there's a few quick bucks in that industry. What about mental health? They could send all their aviation workers there after their break downs. What a money spinner!

I'm surprised they were not installing insulation bats as well.

Dear JHAS Management,

Please don't ruin this fine industry that most people have worked tirelessly to build over the last 90 years. This is not an industry where you can make a quick buck! Whatever it is you are trying to do, just let it go. We don't want what is left of the Australian aviation industry ruined by some dirt shoveling, concrete pouring company who is he'll bent on making a buck, not making it better.

Suspect what Australia needs NF is a Regional MRO Facility which is partly owned by all our Airlines and set up specifically to service next generation aircraft.

Without one, expect A380/350 and B787 heavy maintenance/engine overhaul will be done offshore.

WW - AAES was on the market for all to buy until three years ago but they didn't bother. Also, every JHAS customer expects top priority but somebody has to be second or third. The idea that the airlines can work together is unrealistic.

NF - I can well understand you sentiment and add plenty of other negatives to boot but I do feel that it's the LCC approach to aviation that's driving maintenance. At the end of the day JHAS offer a service that airline beancounters are happy with. As for the workers and JHAS's management style, they still think their building carparks with an endless supply of labour. As for what's next, from what I can tell they're expanding in rail and want to expand into marine to make a three cornered transport division.

well, one thing is screwing alot of local LAMES by importing from overseas then finding that they eventually use the system to ,like Forestaff Avalon to then move into the Majors!!!
no foresight into the future requirements of the industry only really looking at the present.
must be something wrong when staff leave , always a sign of management problems
employing upper management deadwood, actually think that applies all around in this country!!!! sorry

Where is rhomulos. He used to spruik all kinds disinformation on here, esp when they thought they could grab the 380 maint.

So far I am yet to speak to anyone working for JHAS not looking for something else.

Where is your retort "rhomulos" ?

That rumor about the docking appears to be correct.

I have also heard that they are on a recruiting drive for LAME's.
They have even told staff they will get a spotters fee for anyone they get to sign up. Apparently when the workers confronted management with the question, why would they recommend anyone in the industry leave a decent job and come to JHAS? It was suggested that they lie to them because there is money in it for them. What an insight into the management and recruiting style! Just Lie.

Can someone please clarify as to why JHAS are no good?
I would be interested to find out.
Is it just their HM in Melbourne or is it the line stations as well?
I have heard that they pay their line station engineers ok, but I am unaware of the shifts or other conditions.
I have noticed they are constantly searching for night shift guys in Melb, and I have noiced they are looking for LAMES (line in aparticular) around OZ.
I thank everyone for the info in advance.

It has taken a long time for JHAS to get its own thread

Bad things have been happening at JHAS for some time, you cna only treat people badly for so long before they start to respond. This can be seen in the number of people that have decided to walk in recent times. Not to mention the cycle of redundancies and the "we really need you to work hard to get this one out" mentality. JHAS has let Heavy maint slip through their fingers and one customer dictate how the business will be run that customer will dump on JHAS as soon as it can meet its needs somwhere else. I dout if the rush to import overseas licenses will be able to stem the drain from the company.

THE CLOCK IS TICKING, perhaps somebody can come in a pick up the peices but the current management are not capable of doing it!!!

Perhaps Lord Rhomulos is getting his hands dirty putting up the A330 scaffolding and is too busy to respond ???

I don't think he's completely vanished. If you click on his public profile he was last here today at 10:20. Whether he's still associated with JHAS is another question.
