Santa’s sleigh has returned to the North Atlantic and is taking a bit of a flight break for a software upgrade.

The electronics on Santa’s sleigh are very sophisticated. The sleigh is equipped with several communication systems but none is more important than Internet. It is via the Internet that Santa is able to connect his sleigh to the databases of the North Pole. Through this wireless satellite technology Santa is able to have access to his files on any particular believer out there.

Through it he can access wish lists, letters, maps, directions, photos or any other kind of information that is collected on every believer. Santa has records dating back centuries and he knows a lot about most people. But none of that is useful to him if he cannot access it.

Software is needed to connect, access and then deliver to Santa – securely – the information that he needs.

Software also integrates with flight tracking systems, weather computers, and a variety of functions related to the work of the North. It all has to work.

These upgrades happen regularly. They need to be tested thoroughly before the sleigh takes again to the air. When the sleigh is again in flight these systems will be upgraded again. We do not exactly know how long the sleigh will be grounded or where the sleigh will be headed to test the software.

As we learn this information we will share it with you.

There are now only 150 days until Santa launches and North Pole Flight Command has a long list of things to get ready:

  1. Santa has announced that he wants 200 million tracker elves working by the time he launches. Those elves need to be recruited, trained and deployed.
  2. Test flights of Santa’s sleigh continue. The sleigh is on track but testing must be completed and the final version of the sleigh must still be built.
  3. The reindeer need to return to the North Pole. Once they do they must be conditioned, assessed and assigned.
  4. Santa’s workshop is on target with their production goals. They need to remain so.
  5. The North Pole Post Office needs to gear up for the mail Santa anticipates will arrive from fans around the world.
  6. Tracking stations worldwide need to be established and linked to regional flight command centers.

And this is just the short list!

At 150 days things are looking good.

North Pole Flight Command indicates that Santa’s sleigh will soon start to transition to Sector 2. It will begin with an extended period over open water. Where that will exactly be has not been announced.

The sleigh has performed very well since the latest changes were implemented.

We expect that as the sleigh tests over Sector 2 – which is the largest of all sectors on the map – that it may station briefly on board one of the ships anchors in the Pacific ocean by the North Pole Navy.

There the sleigh may be involved in a series of short flight tests for test pilots in training. We may have more news of this activity at a later time.

As the month of July draws to a close we anticipate perhaps a new phase in the testing of the sleigh. Rumors are flying that perhaps Santa himself might participate in August.

That would be very unusual in this phase of the sleigh’s development. Once we have confirmed news we will share it with you.

Flight Command reports that Santa’s sleigh will soon take to the skies of Sector 4. More high-altitude tests are planned.

This will be the first time Sector 4 will have to see Santa’s sleigh. Be warned however that most flights are scheduled late in the day or a night. Flight Command has not said why that is the case. But if you’re hoping to see Santa’s sleigh, look during dark skies.

Santa’s sleigh has been in a “pause” for a few days while sleigh designers made some changes. New prototypes are arriving from the North Pole and flights will again resume and head towards South America first.

Flight Command has also indicated that southern areas of Sector 5 may also see Santa’s sleigh, as well as areas of the Caribbean and the Atlantic seaboard. By the end of next week it is possible that Santa’s sleigh could be over Greenland for a period of several days.
