    UPT Class Start Dates

    I had about a 2 month wait from showing up at Laughlin as a Capt CSO going to UPT. I told the STUS if they had any earlier openings I would be glad to take them. They did and I started SUPT 4 days after i PCS'ed to XL. I also already had my PPL/went to IFS back in the day (in that order 🙄) so YMMV.

  4. 19-02 (possibly 19-03) was the last class at Laughlin to get them on a transition checkride. No idea if its a demo/do now or if its even taught at all.

    IPhone to Galaxy S9+

    My wife are looking at the S9 in favor of our iPhones...and ditching Verizon for TMobile. Concerns: all our music/pictures/movies are tied up on iTunes. I haven't gotten a good answer on the transition from that standpoint. We don't want to lose all that stuff. For deployments iMessage is nice...if you have Wifi. Thats far from guaranteed now though and even if they have it, if you're bouncing between temp housing (looking at you Died, al Salem, DJ)...you either have a half mile walk, or have to pay for it. Positives for switching: We're getting sick of Apple's bullshit. Its exacerbated by this XS release. They (Apple) are consistently a generation or 2 behind Samsung. Verizon just doesn't seem like a good deal, we still have a 10gb plan and don't want to upgrade until we figure out what we're doing. The wifi/iMessage solution is TMobile's plan includes data in something like 200 countries. anyway...change our mind.
