FAA BANS SANTA'S SLEIGH


In a surprise move today The Federal Aviation Administration and Homeland Security joined forces to unilaterally deny domestic air space clearance to the traditional Christmas Eve sleigh ride by Santa Claus.

Santa's ride has been bringing joy and happiness to millions of children for generations. Irate parents worldwide are said to be absolutely distraught. "Who's going to eat the milk and cookies for a start?" asked one parent.

Homeland Security has said that any penetration into American air space will be considered an act of aggression as part of their duty in keeping American airspace and borders safe. A spokesman from Homeland Security told us, "We just can't have every jolly, rosy cheeked, white haired fruitcake in the world flying around American air space unsupervised."

FAA are scratching their heads about where to begin certifying Santa's sleigh as safe for flight. There are no standards regulating the stability and performance of reindeer, also the FAA simply don't know how to inspect a machine which, in their minds, "totally defies the laws of physics".

The FAA will consider granting clearance if all FAA regulations are met. Here are a few:

* As a powered aircraft, Santa's sleigh requires a proper licensed propulsion system (Reindeer fed on magic dust are not mentioned in the regs and can't be used).

* A single red light at the lead of the pack of reindeer does not constitute a set of running lights

* The Sleigh must have a valid maintenance certificate and must meet aerodynamic requirements and be tested in a wind-tunnel.

* Detailed flight plans must be plotted and submitted to the FAA at least six months in advance


Santa Claus is said to be very upset by the reaction from these US agencies and feels the actions are a direct violation of the Children's basic human rights.

Homeland Security laid down the following ultimatum to Santa Claus, "If we see any flying sleighs in the skies over America you can bet you bottom dollar there'll be a F-16 with sidewinders blasting it outta the sky."

 Santa’s FAA inspection…

Around the middle of December each year the FAA sends an inspector up to the North Pole to inspect Santa's operation, the sleigh, reindeer, and give Santa a flight proficiency check and clean bill of health. Once this is done a special flight permit for Christmas is issued and allows Santa to transverse airspace at will. He's also issued time slots and transponder codes, a special flight plan etc,,,

This year, the fed's really put Santa through the wringer.. They pulled the sleigh all apart, went through every record back to the late '80's,,, Tested all his avionics, pitot/static, you name it... Gave Santa a FULL physical and each of the reindeer a physical also.... They meticulously went over the flight plan and made revision after revision.... They went over weight and balance for hours,, and they quizzed Santa on reg's and emergency procedures for what seemed like an eternity...

Finally, after finding nothing really wrong it was time for the flight test. The sleigh was all set and preflighted, the reindeer were ready, and Santa was in the cockpit... But just before the FAA inspector climbed in, he pulls a shotgun from his flight bag and starts loading it.. Santa was shocked. Perplexed, Santa asked the inspector,

"What the *#@! is the gun for!!??!!!

For the first time, the steely eyed FAA man broke from the all business attitude, his shoulders relaxed a bit and a spark of warmth came over his face for a moment.... Then, almost boyishly, he finally said,

"I'm really NOT SUPPOSE to tell you this but,,,,,,,, "

He leaned in close to Santa and whispered in his ear,,

"You're gonna' loose an engine on take off..."

Then he went back to loading the shotgun....

 Has this been posted somewhere on the forum yet?
Oh Well, here it is anyway ;D


Twas the night before Christmas, and out on the ramp,
 Not an airplane was stirring, not even a Champ.
 The aircraft were fastened to tie downs with care,
 In hopes that come morning, they all would be there.
 The fuel trucks were nestled, all snug in their spots,
 With gusts from two-forty at 39 knots.
 I slumped at the fuel desk, now finally caught up,
  And settled down comfortably, resting my butt.
 When the radio lit up with noise and with chatter,
 I turned up the scanner to see what was the matter.
 A voice clearly heard over static and snow,
 Called for clearance to land at the airport below.
  He barked his transmission so lively and quick,
 I'd have sworn that the call sign he used was "St. Nick".
 I ran to the panel to turn up the lights,
 The better to welcome this magical flight.
 He called his position, no room for denial,
 "St. Nicholas One, turnin left onto final.
 And what to my wondering eyes should appear,
 But a Rutan-built sleigh, with eight Rotax Reindeer!!
 With vectors to final, down the glideslope he came,
 As he passed all fixes, he called them by name.
 "Now Ringo! Now Tolga! Now Trini and Bacun!
 On Comet! On Cupid! What pills was he takin?
 While controllers were sittin, and scratchin thier head,
 They phoned to my office, and I heard it with dread.
 The message they left was both urgent and dour,
 "When Santa pulls in, have him please call the tower."
 He landed like silk, with the sled runners sparking,
 Then I heard "Left at Charlie" and "Taxi to parking."
 He slowed to a taxi, turned off of three-oh
 And stopped on the ramp with a "HO, ho-ho-ho..."
 He stepped out of the sleigh, but before he could talk,
 I ran out to meet him with my best set of chocks.
 His red helmet and goggles were covered with frost,
 And his beard was all blackened from Reindeer exhaust.
 His breath smelled like peppermint, gone slightly stale,
 And he puffed on a pipe, but he didn't inhale.
 His cheeks were all rosy and jiggled like jelly,
 His boots were as black as a crop dusters belly.
 He was chubby and plump, in his suit of bright red,
 And he asked me to "fill it, with hundred low-lead."
 He came dashing in from the snow-covered pump,
 I knew he was anxious for drainin' the sump.
 I spoke not a word, but went straight to my work,
 And I filled up the sleigh, but I spilled like a jerk.
 He came out of the restroom, and sighed in relief,
 Then he picked up a phone for a Flight Service brief.
 And I thought as he silently scribed in his log,
 These reindeer could land in an eighth-mile fog.
 He completed his pre-flight, from the front to the rear,
 Then he put on his headset, and I heard him yell "Clear!!"
  And laying a finger on his push-to-talk,
 He called up the tower for clearance and squawk.
 "Take taxiway Charlie, the southbound direction,
 Turn right three-two-zero at pilots discretion".
 He sped down the runway, the best of the best,
 "Your traffics a Grumman, inbound from the west."
 Then I heard him proclaim, as he climbed thru the night,
Merry Christmas to all!! I have traffic in sight."
