How the Company Began

Our founder, Seth Schall, began his aviation consulting career in 2001 in Southern California providing airline interview preparation seminars, simulator preparation, crew coordination training and one-on-one interview preparation at the Long Beach and John Wayne Orange County Airports.

Over the past 20 years, Seth developed his industry knowledge as a commercial pilot. He began his flying career as a Lear Jet and Hawker pilot flying FAR 135 operations globally from Van Nuys, CA. This experience led to 10 years as a regional airline captain and check airman, culminating in a career pilot position at a legacy airline. His career experience provided the necessary insight and knowledge to serve as a mentor and develop successful programs for interview preparation and career guidance to prospective pilots seeking employment at U.S. legacy, major and regional airlines.

Airline Transition Consultants evolved to specialize in application review when we discovered that talented, well-trained pilots were not moving past the first step in transitioning to a major airline. The problem was the online application process.


Over the past 15 years, we’ve seen the evolution of the third party application service provider (ASP) used by many airlines. These ASPs were developed to aid the airline industry in their quest to locate, track, sort and hire the best pilots in the industry. It created another level of computerized screening complexity for pilots to navigate. A consequence of this faceless objectivity is that applications from great candidates slip down into a black hole, never to be seen by a hiring committee. Sadly, most candidates have no idea that a computer is screening them out because their application was deemed incomplete. This is where the specialists at Airline Transition Consultants come in. You must apply correctly before you’re hired, which is not as simple as you might think. We are fluent in all ASP website formats. Let us help you achieve your goals. Contact us for a free application analysis today.
