North Pole Flight Command reported the other day a change in test flights of Santa’s sleigh, focusing on long range flights. The last day or two has seen the test flights hop from Hawaii to Chile, from Chile to South Africa and then from South Africa to Iceland.
This is a significant change in pattern. Some test flight pilots have suggested that the new flights reveal exciting new capabilities and very useful data never before seen due to the different nature of these flights.
They also bring surprising results. The sleigh in the past few days has reached record speeds, something test pilots thought might be possible.
For more information about the test flights of Santa’s sleigh and what they mean for Santa’s flight this year, please listen to the North Pole Radio News report in the player above.
