Guys, get it together!

I’m really tempted by Shawn Blanc/The Sweet Setup’s 2020 iPad planner.

It looks like using my Apple Pencil/iPad Pro would be awesome. My track record with planners, however, says I should pass.

Aviation geeks like to use the abbreviation IFE for “in-flight entertainment.” Pilots know that IFE always means “In-Flight Emergency.”

Great memories of the excitement of my solo cross-country IFE. America has a fantastic procedure for helping pilots in distress.

Would I recommend: YES
