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.

As trackers worldwide begin preparations to Track Santa North Pole Flight Command is working today to complete synchronization with five regional tracking centers spread across the globe.

North Pole Flight Command has the world divided into roughly five different sectors:

– Sector 1 – Oceania, including South Pacific Nations, New Zealand, Australia and the Pacific Rim
– Sector 2 – Asia and the Middle East
– Sector 3 – Europe and Africa
– Sector 4 – The Atlantic, Greenland and South America
– Sector 5 – Central and North America

The regional tracking centers are mostly remote and all are in secret, unmarked facilities. These are their general locations:

– Sector 1 – Christmas Island, Australia
– Sector 2 – Rudolph Island, Russia
– Sector 3 – Star, Scotland
– Sector 4 – La Paz, Bolivia
– Sector 5 – Antler, North Dakota, USA

The redundancy in tracking centers is necessary due to the possibility that power loss or other catastrophe at North Pole Flight Command. In that case, one of the other tracking centers would become the primary hub of news, information and coordination.

Santa Claus today joined a meeting of scouts who are in Flight Command today and tomorrow to receive instruction prior to leaving for field service.

The special elves are different from the Tracker Elves you read about at SantaTrackers.net. These are a special team of experienced elves who have served as field agents for flight command for decades.

There are 36 such elves. They leave soon for field assignments that will have them track Santa from ground level using special equipment to record flight data. In the past they have been referred to as “professional Santa trackers” but Santa has discouraged the use of that term in recent years.

As scouts there are sent to specific, and usually remote, locations that will fall directly beneath Santa’s anticipated flight path. In fact, both Santa and the Scouts carry synchronized beacons so that they can “find” each other when Santa flies. The idea is to provide data relative to Santa’s flight speed and altitude independent of any on board systems.

Scouts are also charged with reporting on special situations and circumstances. The nature of their missions are rarely, if ever, known outside of their department. Santa likely knows their missions but nobody else in Flight Command does.

Their meetings today and tomorrow are to discuss these special missions. Then the scouts will be dismissed to find their way to their assigned locations.

Occasionally one or more of these scouts get interviewed during the “Tracking Santa Around the World” radio broadcast that airs live on Kringle Radio. Their locations may be discussed briefly but their missions are never disclosed.

We will keep you posted on their activity, if they allow us.

Tracker Elves number more than 40 million now according to the latest data shared between North Pole Flight Command and SantaTrackers.net.

Last summer Santa set the goal to have 40 million or more Santa tracker elves for the 2020 Christmas flight and that will be blown away. Last year in the five days previous to Christmas nearly 6 million new elves joined the ranks.

Today, December 12th, with the goal now met for the year, some elves here are estimating as many as 10 million more new trackers will come in the final days before Christmas.

The importance of trackers elves cannot be overstated. Santa himself has said many times that he cannot get around the world quickly and safely without their help.

Elves who track Santa for Santa provide critical data to North Pole Flight Command that is then relayed to Santa in real time while in flight on his sleigh. The more tracker elves that Santa has on the ground the better, in fact.

Santa has also organized a Tracker Elf Conference, scheduled for December 13th in the North Pole Chat room at SantaUpdate.com, to help train new trackers in their duties.

Not only are there more tracker elves this year there are more resources made available to them than ever before to give them training, information and breaking news.
