North Pole is Ready

We’re ready.

Santa’s sleigh has been fully tested. The Workshop is nearly done. Nearly every department – except the North Pole Post Office – reports that every detail has been tended to.

The countdown to Santa’s launch is now about a day away.

With Santa’s approval, tracker elves at SantaTrackers.net have started to check in world wide.

There is no stopping Santa right now.

We have consolidated all of our news going forward. To see and hear all that is going on at the North Pole, please visit SantaUpdate.com for the latest information. Within hours the Tracking Santa Around the World Radio Show will begin. A player will be made available on every North Pole website.

Thank you for your support this year.

Santa to Take the Sleigh on a Test Flight

Santa has yet to even see his newly designed sleigh. But in an unexpected announcement from North Pole Flight Command today it was revealed that the Big Guy himself will soon take the sleigh out for a test flight.

Santa’s sleigh has been a wonder in flight trials that have been ongoing since June. Flight analysts have been predicting that speed records would fall with this new design. There has been so much buzz about the new sleigh and its capabilities that Santa just can’t wait to give it a try.

Sometime over the next few days Santa is expected to take a late night spin when he can get away from the visiting he is doing with children around the world. Exactly when and where that would happen has not yet been disclosed.

We will keep you posted.

Test Flights Over Sector 5

Test Flights Over Sector 5

Test flights will be over Sector 5 for the next several days. Flight Engineers say this could be the last time the sleigh will be over Sector 5 before the final test flight scheduled for early Christmas Eve.

Sector 5 is home to more tracker elves than any other sector in the world.

The next few days represent a good training opportunity for new tracker elves in Sector 5. You can follow along on the Santa Tracker Map at SantaTrackers.net if you are a registered elf.

Flights of Santa’s sleigh have been so successful there is talk of ending the test flights early. We will keep you posted.

Sleigh to Fly Fast This Weekend

Sleigh to Cover All Sectors This Weekend

Santa’s sleigh and some of his reindeer will be conducting high speed tests this weekend that will span the globe.

For the first time this year a real simulation of Santa’s flight will take place as the sleigh will appear in the skies over all sectors over the next couple of days. The only time that happens is usually when Santa himself flies on Christmas Eve.

The purpose of these tests is to see how the sleigh performs under sustained speeds of an unusually high nature. The sleigh will be tested both empty and full, also at high and low altitudes.

Sleigh engineers and flight planners in North Pole Flight Command are increasingly positive about the new design of Santa’s sleigh. Most here really feel Santa has a great chance to set a new speed record this year.

The test flights have been going very well. In fact, the sleigh is so well thought of that many are starting to worry instead about the reindeer. They are closely watching the condition of the reindeer so THEY do not end up being the reason Santa doesn’t set the record.
