As noted recently in the news at the North Pole Santa has ordered more test sleighs to be quickly constructed and for expansion of sleigh test flights.

This is not an unusual announcement. In fact, it is a very common thing at this time of the year.

With a little more than a month until flight time for Santa the expansion of tests means we are closer to having a finalized design. Santa has said he is very encouraged with how the test flights have gone and he is excited about the new sleigh design.

Of course, in order to expand the test flights more reindeer will be needed to handle the work load.

Word was sent to Bright Star ranch in Argentina to seek reindeer who can fulfill the mission of the test flights of Santa’s sleigh. Over the next few days the sleigh will shift closer to the North Pole in testing activities. It is expected that the reindeer will join the test flight team at that time.

We do not know yet if the test flights being greater in number will mean they might be spread out to other locations around the world. That is being discussed. We hope to be able to announce the tentative locations of test flight activity for the next several weeks.

As we get closer to Christmas the interest in the test flights naturally increases.

Reindeer fatigue is setting in among the teams of reindeer being used for test flights of Santa’s sleigh. Since early August sleighs have been in flight almost constantly, with reindeer and test pilots often working as long as 12 hours at a time.

“We only requested about 3400 reindeer, thinking Santa’s other reindeer would be starting to show up by now,” said Elf Buck Sanchez, Operations Director at North Pole Flight Command. “We need to give these teams some rest. So we have sent in a request for some reindeer relief.”

It should be noted that all of these reindeer working the test flights are specially chosen for this duty. They are used to a rigorous schedule. None of them are injured or in poor health at this time.

Santa’s sleigh continues flights over the mid-Atlantic this week.

We are seeing more and more reindeer returning to the North Pole in recent days. Santa has directed that test flights of the new sleigh accelerate. This means he needs more reindeer.

A call was made earlier this week to reindeer ranches around the world maintained by the North Pole. Elves working in those locations enthusiastically responded to Santa’s request.

Santa may venture out to visit some of the reindeer ranches soon. If true, it will be the first time he has left the North Pole since he returned abruptly from his walkabout in early April.

Of course, the virus concerns are still very real and some at the North Pole have expressed doubts that Santa should go. A recent visit with Elf Dr. Lionel P. Spock suggests that Santa has received an evaluation and has been cleared for travel. If this happens we will let you know.

We have had nothing but good news coming from the test flights of Santa’s new sleigh. It is performing very, very well.
