    75% or more travel USA Jobs

    Just a heads up to wannabe ATSS'S. It seems all new and future job advertisement show 75% or more travel in the description. I believe FAA HR is doing this to weed out those not willing to attend all the schools. In my opinion 50-100% travel jobs are like field engineers or mobile techs/Cal...
