The test flights of Santa’s sleigh have ended. In an announcement made by Santa to his Tracker Elves it was explained that the test pilots, reindeer and sleighs will wrap up their current flights over Alaska today and head home to the North Pole.
Just one final test flight of Santa’s sleigh remains, the one scheduled December 23rd in the hours before Santa’s launch.
Santa mentioned that the test flights are ending due to continual hacks of North Pole Internet operations and that to lock down systems it was prudent to end the flights. The sleigh was only on Version 2, and it has been in test flight mode since last June.
“We are confident in the abilities of this sleigh,” said Elf Roger Star, Director of North Pole Flight Command, “Never in history have we have a sleigh design that has performed as well as this one. Speed records have been set. Altitude records have been set. We see unprecedented maneuverability with this sleigh and outstanding performance in every way. With this sleigh Santa is well equipped to take his ride this year.”
Despite the ending of test flights there are a lot of things yet to be accomplished before Santa launches next week.
