North Pole Flight Command announced today that a short break will be given to the test pilots and reindeer assigned to Santa’s Sleigh.
In recent days the test flights have been over Sector 3 in northern Europe. The flights will be over the northern Atlantic and Greenland before being grounded while pilots and reindeer return to the North Pole for the Thanksgiving break.
Santa’s sleigh has had a very successful run so far this year. Version 2 of the sleigh has held as the design standard and early flight reports indicate Santa could have a new all-time speed record with the way this sleigh flies.
