Just 300 days remain now until Santa’s launch. North Pole Flight Command continues to work towards a successful flight again this year.
Santa’s sleigh will again be built from the ground up but it will utilize the same design as a year ago. As a result, test flights for Santa’s sleigh will be delayed until later in the year.
Flight Command has scouts in the field right now searching for good locations to set up regional tracking centers in each sector. There is no particular hurry for this project either. Right now, scouts are taking recommendations and looking at possible locations. Contracts are expected to be signed and locations finalized by Christmas in July.
Christmas in July is likewise an important time for Flight Command. While there are a number of fun recreational events, including the radio replay of Santa’s flight from last Christmas, it is also a big marker on the calendar for nearly every North Pole Department.
At flight command training will be taking place for sleigh flight controllers, test pilots and even reindeer during Christmas in July. Likewise, all equipment overhauls and testing is supposed to be complete.
For Tracker Elves worldwide, who gather online at SantaTrackers.net, the all new Elf University will be launched by then and trackers will be training heavily during Christmas in July.
