Mrs. Claus has relayed a request from Santa just as the test flights for Santa’s new sleigh are about to begin.
She has asked North Pole Flight Command to prepare a special radio unit that will allow Santa to listen in on flight communications between test pilots and North Pole Flight Command.
Santa wants to monitor progress of the test flights and, if necessary, ask questions and provide feedback to Flight Command.
It is interesting that Santa is involving himself in this project. Before he left the North Pole to go on walkabout he said he was leaving things “in the hands of Mrs. Claus and the elves”. During his time away Santa did not want to be distracted with the usual business of Operation Merry Christmas.
Now it appears he wants an exception to this.
It is not known at this time what North Pole Flight Command will do to honor Santa’s request. Engineers in Research and Development are working on it right now.
