If you want to succeed as an instructor there, you need to do certain things outside the boundary of law. Therefore Chinese Instructors are their favorites because they break laws such as conduct flight training at night without NVFR TE. Conduct flight trainings on CSU fitted aircrafts without a DFTE.

Can I suggest that if you actually have documented proof of such allegations that you report them accordingly instead of spewing them across a random anonymous forum.

How often have I heard bullshyte like this?

Make an allegation and put your name to it.

Watch as the subject of the allegation calls their lawyers and threatens you with slander/ defamation and destroys your reputation and career.

Watch as they erase their tracks and make the crimes you accused them of disappear.

Weep as they tell the regulator that the allegation is without foundation and was made by a notorious malcontent who was once a bad employee.

Cry as the regulator believes it and walks away.

CASA, you have been warned that IAA is a shyteshow. Get off your backside and audit them!

Just ask Glen Buckley. If what he alleges is true, then CASA deliberately destroys good and legal operators. At the same time, if other allegations are true, CASA takes no action at all against bad apples - the likes of SOAR and now IAA Mildura.

What is going on? Are competence and excellence in an operator seen as a threat? At same time sub standard behaviour is perhaps a more comfortable situation to deal with.

proofs you looking for are the 35 staff members that had to leave IAA Mildura within a 10 month span because of bullying and harassment by the management

CASA won't lay a finger on them, they are in bed with IAA Mildura, there were plenty of safety reports send to CASA, No investigation, no actions been taken so far

Interesting! In what way was SOAR not compliant with CASA regulations. My reading of the forums was that they met all CASA and RAAUS requirements. CASA has no oversight of RTO status, however students must meet the required standards to pass PPL/CPL etc.

Mate, ask anyone who have been in close contact with IAA Mildura or AAA mildura,
there were 6 HOOs change in a year, why??
why is the company change their name every 3months??
how did certain HOOs got away after conducting 100s of hours of flying with out holding the correct endorsements?

SOAR was a disgusting excuse for a flight school and Neel Kokhani is a liar, thief and should be locked up for the criminal way he treats staff and students.
This is not slander it is FACT! SOAR has been taken to Fair Work numerous times and has been found wanting. They have been subjected to safety inspections by RAAus and CASA in response to MANY OBSERVED breaches of safety.

Nope! Been posting long before SOAR existed.

zanthrus, there are many FTOs and CAMOs that have had audits, taken corrective action and continue to operate in compliance with CASA. That will not change.

Hi All.
Further to the post asking about the Chinese Flight Training school located at Mildura,would it be possible to have anyone who has worked there as an instructor give me an "Understanding" of their thoughts on how this school operates and is it within any guide lines that you people work to.We have an existing flight training school located at the Mildura Airport and these people appear to run a completely different operation.How you guys can help me out with your thoughts.No names ,no pack drill.

I am just curious to know what kind of reports were sent to CASA, if you have some proof to back your claims I am sure details would be well appreciated by the aviation community

Thisishardtochoose, you are asking far too many questions which I think is for the purpose of evaluating just who has been told about the rot at IAA and the destination, quality, content and number of the complaints.

Are you are worried about the possibility of prosecution?

Why would I be worried about the possibility of prosecution? You don't even know me sunfish?
Didn't know asking questions on this forum was such a harmful thing to do. Unlike you mate I like to make my decisions on the facts provided and so far no one has provided any such facts to back their claims.

Choosy, this is a rumor network. Furthermore, nobody in their right mind will give you details of complaints lest they identify themselves and invite retribution. Let IAA find out the hard way about the allegations.

Is the Commonwealth taxpayer getting the promised return on the two million bucks this school was given? Seeing as presumably the 600 promised students can't get into the country?

Isn't that what Glen did sunny? When no one was hearing his case, provided proof to back up his claims in order to get the support of the aviation industry?

Correct me if I am wrong, wasn't the 2 million dollars given to Mildura airport for the ILS installation rather than the flying school?
