Test flights of Santa’s sleigh have started as the 150 day milestone to Santa’s launch is observed.

12 sleighs have taken to the skies of South America, also known at North Pole Flight Command as Sector 4.

On the ground, the regional tracking center located in Milagro, Ecuador has been active and is now controlling those flights. It is very early in the process and engineers from there inform us that for the next several days the sleighs will be flying in “easy mode” – which translates to moderate speeds and altitude.

It is expected they will be in Sector 4 through at least the first part of next week.

North Pole Flight Command is hopeful that a flight schedule for the next month or so can be announced by the end of this week.

Tracking of the test flights of Santa’s sleigh can be done at SantaTrackers.net.

North Pole Flight Command announces a historic first for Sector 3, which covers the continents of Africa and Europe. This year’s regional headquarters will be located in Africa for the first time. Bethlehem, South Africa was chosen for it’s temperate climate, it’s central location within Sector 3, and for it’s available amenities useful in the support of Santa’s flight.

Elf Rolf and team are there rushing to get the facility open and ready to track test flights of Santa’s sleigh. It is winter there now and it is expected to see a lot of action early in the test flight process because of that.

Bethlehem is named after the other city of the same name, located in Palestine, which also hosts a regional tracking center, as announced last week by Flight Command. It is a historic first in many ways for Santa’s flight.

Bethlehem in South Africa, while not a remote location, is no large city, having just 25,000 estimated inhabitants. The name Bethlehem means “House of Bread”.

We will provide more details of this location once we receive a report from Elf Rolf.

Flight Director Elf Buck Sanchez announced today that test flights of Santa’s Sleigh will begin on Monday, July 26th.

Flights will begin in Sector 4, which has had their Regional Tracking Center live for several months now and is the team best prepared to track the test flights. We are told that flights very close to the regional HQ in Milagro, Ecuador are expected, with flight expanding further over South America in the next several days.

After about a week it is expected that flights will shift to over Sector 1, specifically over the countries of Australia and New Zealand.

We will keep you posted on the progress of the flights and where future flights will be scheduled.

It is not known at this time if the tracking map will yet be made available online. We will keep you posted.

Sector 5, the area covering North and Central America, will have their regional tracking center located back in the United States this year. It will be located in Mistletoe, Kentucky.

This rural location is known for it’s local crop of the Christmas icon, Mistletoe. That parasitic plant grows at the top of Oak trees during the fall and winter months. It’s ability to grow during a cold and sometimes harsh season made it a symbol for eternity for ancient peoples who celebrated Christmas.

Mistletoe, Kentucky was once a small settlement that had a post office. But even that is now gone. It is a rural area with a lake nearby and only a few scattered residents. It’s low altitude makes for a fairly mild winter environment and North Pole Flight Command considers its remote location ideal for tracking the busiest sector on the map.

Elf Pinky and team are there now, working in what she calls “a huge barn with lots of spiders”, to get set up before the test flights of Santa’s sleigh begins.

Of course, the exact location of the regional tracking center in Mistletoe remains classified.
