Looking forward to milk and cookies
NORTH POLE, Transport Canada, Dec. 20, 2013 /CNW/ - Santa Claus and his
sleigh have successfully passed the pre-flight inspection process and
have been cleared for take-off. All of his paperwork has been approved,
his cargo has been checked, loaded and balanced, and his flight plan
has been filed. He and his trusty team of reindeer are expected to
leave the North Pole on time with a huge pile of toys on board.
Like all pilots, Santa must undergo an annual physical in order to keep
his license. We are pleased to report that he passed with flying
colours. Despite his famously sweet tooth, he is in surprisingly good
shape, he logs five kilometres a day snowshoeing and has a
kale-and-goji-berry smoothie every morning for breakfast.
Santa consistently impresses his pilot friends with his uncanny ability
for safe take-offs and landings in urban centres and flying in whiteout
Santa always makes sure to get enough rest before flying.
Santa's pre-flight checklist includes looking for ice build-ups,
checking Rudolph's nose, and ensuring that the elves on board are
informed about safety procedures.
"It's lovely to live in Canada with all of our well-behaved children and
our country's continued commitment to aviation safety. Knowing that
Canada has one of the best aviation safety records in the world and
that Transport Canada is looking out for my dear husband means I have
one less thing to worry about on such a busy day"
