North Pole flight engineers have transferred sleigh flight tests to Iceland, focusing on landings this week. Santa’s sleigh is performing very well in the early going.
Test flight operations of Santa’s sleigh have been unexpectedly moved from over Mongolia to the skies of Northern Canada. Flight engineers reported communication disruptions with North Pole flight command due to increased solar activity as a likely cause for the issues. “We’re here to test flight, not communications,” said test pilot, Elf Vernon. “We need communications to work all the time every time. This is about the sleigh. So we’ve moved our venue. Hopefully this helps.”
Flight engineers don’t know if testing will remain in Canada.
Santa’s sleigh is being tested by pilots stationed in remote Mongolia this week. They are conducting load balancing in high speed drills at various altitudes. Recent reports indicate a strong performance by Santa’s sleigh. We will keep you posted.
Santa’s sleigh for Christmas 2016 is presently under construction and will begin flight tests soon. According to those with access to top-secret areas of the Research & Development Department the new sleigh is bigger and has a radical new design. Details are very top secret at this point.
Santa is yet to release pictures of the new sleigh to the public.
The sleigh will soon be scheduled for a series of tests before it actually gets approval for flight on Christmas Eve.
