Despite the disruption to operations at the Regional Tracking Center for Sector 3 in Vik, Iceland North Pole Flight Command is moving ahead with plans to shift test flights of Santa’s Sleigh (Version 2) to the skies of Europe in the coming days.
“We need flight tests in winter weather,” said Elf Buck Sanchez, Flight Operations Director at the North Pole. “We see a lot of active winter weather in Europe coming so we’re going there.”
Test flights of Santa’s sleigh continue to perform well. At this time, no further adjustments of the sleigh are anticipated. Tests over Sector 5 the past week have been successful.
As for the situation in Vik and the set up of a temporary tracking center in Norway, we anticipate being able to share news on that in a few days.
