If you need work, do not go there

Hi Cptsyd200bc
Please do not go there, it's a terrible work place,
I know Instructors who have left IAA Mildura because they got bullied and harrased at IAA by the Chinese and the Chinese spies inside the company

On a different but nonetheless related matter to this thread, I note the extensive and expensive work being done to upgrade the runways at YWTO, a mere 12nm or so from YMIA. Somebody must be planning on a bit/lot more activity at YWTO.

I heard they were fed up with what’s been happening at MIA. There’s been a lot of threads on here about the place and how unfriendly it is.

Who’s “they”?

Have to agree, though. YWTO seems to me to be a much friendlier place for GA than YMIA these days.

IAA Mildura - Hell on earth

Probably the worst place to work at. Their Instructors do more bus driving than any flying. I was an instructor there, I left few months back.
IAA is worst than Soar.
Lot of favoritism exists in that company. Australian Instructors are treated very poorly while on the other hand the Chinese Instructors gets treated like kings. If you want to succeed as an instructor in that company you will have to bend and break quite a lot of rules and regulations like 100hrs of Night instructional flying without a NVFR TE. That's just one, there are plenty of incidents like this
so better not go there for a job

Way back in 2018 the Shire of Wentworth Council was promised by the owners of the MIA international pilot cadet flight school that there would be thousands of fee paying movements conducted at WTO but only if the airport was upgraded. So the Mayor of Wentworth successfully lobbied the NSW government for a $9 Mil grant to upgrade the runways, taxiways and hard standing. Now it seems that those promised movements may never happen.

​​​​​​
​​​​​It's probably the only flight school worse that Soar aviation. They have no proper resources to teach, such as books, any of the law documents, no Long briefs or short briefs, no proper class rooms. 150 students are squeezed into a small hangar building.

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.

Conspiracy theorist in me says, either idiot with an agenda, or poor excuse for a false flag operation.

Mate, call up AFAP and Fairwork, even they will agree that IAA Mildura is a horrible place to work at. Staff at IAA Mildura have been to AFAP with their problems with the company

Any form of proof to back your statement or just going to throw around some wild accusations?

The school at MIA is run by an Asian autocratic individual who is not capable of listening to those who know aviation training better than he does. He presides over a management structure which consists of him sitting alone at the top with a vertical line to the bottom where everyone else fights in an administrative melee to be heard or to influence policy.

Contrary to the regulatory requirements, CASR Part 142 titles such as CEO, HOO, SM are purely ornamental and carry no real power or influence within the respective organisations (there are four) which form IAA.

The lack of a pyramidal management structure results in an administrative mess, which the well meaning individuals who do persevere with their employment at MIA are not permitted to clean up. As long as the head man continues to wield the autocratic sword of Damocles there is no long term future for IAA, whether at MIA or elsewhere. I would advise those considering working there to look elsewhere.
