Heads up for Sector 3

Heads up for Sector 3

Hello Trackers!

It all begins with Sector 3! North Pole Flight Command has issued an advisory for Sector 3 beginning on June 26th – the test flights of Santa’s sleigh will be over our sector for five to seven days beginning on that date. Presently it is being lightly tested somewhere over the skies of the North Atlantic.

Keep your eye on the Santa Tracking Map to see movement. We have no information yet to share about WHERE in our sector the sleigh will be. It could be anywhere in Europe or Africa. I will do my best to alert you when that flight telemetry comes in.

We’re testing our equipment here at the Regional Tracking Center in the Belgium city of Sint-Niklaas during this first test flight period in our sector. We are not anticipating any problems but we do want to hear from you if you happen to see the sleigh before we do.

Stand by, trackers. We’re about to get started!

Elf Rolf Janssen
Tracking Center Director -- Europe & Africa at the North Pole Tracking Department
Elf Rolf is a native of Austria. As a young man he moved to Russia and was a refugee of that country in 1915 when he found his way to Santa’s employ. Skilled in carpentry, Rolf was given duties in Santa’s workshop where he worked for many years. Charged with building the first airplane Santa ever flew in 1927 — thanks to his wood working skills — Elf Rolf was transferred to the Research and Development Department where he served for many years as a sleigh designer and eventually as a flight test pilot.

Rolf took a departure from that work in the mid-1960s when he pursued a degree in computer science, a pioneering field for the North Pole. He returned in 1968 and for years served in data processing before being transferred to the North Pole Tracking and Flight Command Center as an IT specialist. He was instrumental in helping Santa to set up a network of satellites that have become the backbone of North Pole information systems to this day.
