The final test flight of Santa’s Sleigh is now officially scheduled to depart in about 12 hours. North Pole Flight Command has announced that veteran pilot Elf Ace McHenry will take command of the flight.

Being the final test flight pilot is a singular honor for elves who serve as part of the North Pole Air Force. It is generally recognized that the pilot chosen for this duty as distinguished themselves above others during the course of the year in helping to contribute to the cause of Santa.

To get the honor is to more or less win a spot in the Test Pilot Hall of Fame at the North Pole.

The honor is a long time coming for Commander McHenry, who has served in the North Pole Air Force for many years. He has long been considered an elite pilot, one of the very best that Santa has.

We will, as always, track the path of the final test flight of Santa’s sleigh when it launches from the North Pole.

Christmas Eve begins in 24 hours. In just 24 hours on the western side of the International Dateline in the middle of the Pacific Ocean it will officially be Christmas Eve.

The 24 hour period before Christmas Eve begins in the South Pacific is a critical time for North Pole Flight Command. A number of things happen during this time frame:

– Santa’s sleigh gets prepared for it’s final test flight
– Santa’s reindeer go into isolation
– Tracker Elves world wide begin their check-in process

After that 24 hour period passes, the worldwide live radio broadcast from the North Pole begins.

The real news of Santa is just beginning, folks.

Check back often.

An important process has quietly starting at North Pole Flight Command.

A long check-in process from each sector, from each system, from every department, from each critical component of Santa’s operation is checking in and giving their “go for launch” command.

This means that all checklists have been completed. It means that everything is in readiness. It means that all agree on the launch time for Santa — or set a new time if something is wrong.

This process will take better than 40 hours.

We will let you know if anything stops this process. Stand by for news.
