Ohmigosh, ohmigosh, ohmigosh!!!! You guys are never going to believe this. I can fly a sleigh!!!
Hi, Elf Trixie here. I’m back! And I’m so excited. There are only 31 weeks left until Christmas.
That means I have only a short amount of time because a certified sleigh pilot. That’s right, I’m in flight school!
That Basic Elf Training thing was hard but some good stuff came out of it. I passed my math test, and I did really well with the physics exam. But when they put me in a sleigh flight simulator they offered me a scholarship to Elf Flight School. I hear it is a really big honor to get this.
I got my first classes last week and it was a total scream. I can’t even tell you. I got to go up in a sleigh with Elf Snowdog (not his real name, that’s his call sign) and he let me fly it for a while. It was SO cool.
I didn’t know this but most elves don’t get a flight license. Only certain elves can get a license.
When I did so well in all those classes and then took the flight simulator they got really excited because I qualified so fast. I guess that normally does not happen – especially when I wasn’t even trying that hard.
I mean, it just wasn’t on my radar. There’s a lot of things I want to do as an elf but I never dreamed of flying a sleigh.
But since I qualified and they asked, I said “Sure! I want to learn!” So Snowdog took me up and I gotta tell ya – I’m hooked now. Flying a sleigh is SO cool.
So I’m going to get my license.
It will take a while, they tell me. I have to log a lot of hours in the air as a pilot.
And I have to meet with a career counselor from the Department of Elf Resources. I guess they have a lot of questions and stuff.
I also heard that Elf Ernest is not happy about this. I saw him after I got home and just told him about this and he got a bit pouty. I guess he’s lost a lot of good elf reporters to flight school.
But he doesn’t have to worry. I’m not a flight risk, haha. (A little elf humor for you there).
I’m still a news elf at heart.
But doggone it. I have a reindeer. And she’s in flight training too. Sooner or later we’ve got to get together and go out for a spin on a snowy night. That’s a dream.
I’ll keep you posted on how all this goes.
