250 Days Until Santa’s Launch

, , ,

We are now at 250 days until the launch of Santa’s sleigh.

Before our next marker at 200 days we expect to see a lot of progress. By the time that milestone comes in early June we should see the return of test flight teams and the start of test flights of Santa’s new sleigh.

The work of the Regional Tracking Center Committee should be advanced by then too. Sometime in July the centers will be announced.

We also expect an update from Santa’s Workshop about the progress being made to fulfill wishes. It’s always busier the 2nd half of the year but we should have a good idea if things are on track.

So what’s going on for THIS marker?

Elf training is top of mind at this time of year. Sleigh Traffic Control school is over and testing is being done to certified the 2000 new elves that will be needed in advance of Santa’s flight.

We are also expecting some news about sleigh designs of a different sort. We understand that freighter sleighs – the thousands to participate in Operation Airlift every Christmas Eve to support Santa all over the world – will be getting a new design this year with upgraded capabilities.

In all, it’s a busy time at North Pole Flight Command. Everything appears to be on track.

    Thank you, Elf Meg. Wow, that sounds so exciting! I heard the colors of Santa’s new sleigh. I didn’t know the freighter sleigh would also be designed newly. Wow, 2,000 new elves will be needed for Santa’s flight. Do they increase every year? Or are the pilot’s periods short? I’m thinking about the locations of the regional centers too. Every news is so interesting. I can’t take my eyes off it!
