North Pole Flight Command indicates that Santa’s sleigh will soon start to transition to Sector 2. It will begin with an extended period over open water. Where that will exactly be has not been announced.

The sleigh has performed very well since the latest changes were implemented.

We expect that as the sleigh tests over Sector 2 – which is the largest of all sectors on the map – that it may station briefly on board one of the ships anchors in the Pacific ocean by the North Pole Navy.

There the sleigh may be involved in a series of short flight tests for test pilots in training. We may have more news of this activity at a later time.

As the month of July draws to a close we anticipate perhaps a new phase in the testing of the sleigh. Rumors are flying that perhaps Santa himself might participate in August.

That would be very unusual in this phase of the sleigh’s development. Once we have confirmed news we will share it with you.

Flight Command reports that Santa’s sleigh will soon take to the skies of Sector 4. More high-altitude tests are planned.

This will be the first time Sector 4 will have to see Santa’s sleigh. Be warned however that most flights are scheduled late in the day or a night. Flight Command has not said why that is the case. But if you’re hoping to see Santa’s sleigh, look during dark skies.

Santa’s sleigh has been in a “pause” for a few days while sleigh designers made some changes. New prototypes are arriving from the North Pole and flights will again resume and head towards South America first.

Flight Command has also indicated that southern areas of Sector 5 may also see Santa’s sleigh, as well as areas of the Caribbean and the Atlantic seaboard. By the end of next week it is possible that Santa’s sleigh could be over Greenland for a period of several days.

Test flights of Santa’s sleigh have revealed design flaws that require adjustments. Flights are not being delayed, but new sleighs are being sent to test flight crews on a continual basis from the Research and Development Department.

At present, the test flights are over Sector 1 but will soon be moving to Sector 4 for continued testing. It is hoped that before test flights begin in Sector 4 that the most current designs are being tested.

Santa himself is yet to fly the new sleigh. It could be months before he does so.

Experts from Flight Command say all this is normal and that the sleigh is well ahead on the development timeline. While changes in the sleigh’s design are inconvenient they say it is completely normal. They contend none of these developments are so serious that plans will need to be delayed or that Santa’s mission is in any danger at all.

With the repositioning of the North Pole Navy as announced earlier Santa’s sleigh has only seen a limited number of flights so far. That is soon to change. In fact, a full schedule of test flights will begin in a 24-hour-per-day operation as soon as next week.

We are not quite ready to announce the location of where these first test flights will take place.

Right now the entire fleet of new sleighs is aboard the Snowball in the North Atlantic. The North Pole Navy has deployed the Jingle Bell to the Pacific but it is not yet in position to support flight operations. Once it anchors at an undisclosed location the sleighs and reindeer will be split between both oceans on opposite sides of the world. How that will affect the scheduling of test flights we do not yet know.

Please stand by for those details.
