Santa Called Out for Using General
Aviation Aircraft
An unidentified internet-based watchdog group has challenged Santa Claus' use of a privately operated sleigh on his annual rounds. In an unwritten statement, the group maintained: "Why should he be entitled to that wasteful perk? He could be flying coach for much less than it costs him to operate his own private, luxury aircraft." The group further stated that it had received support for its position from several members of Congress (representing both sides of the aisle) and at least one of the Big Three automakers, who wrote: "He doesn't use it that much anyway. It'll save him a lot of money to get out of this business." (One of the congressmen interviewed by the group is reported to have asked, "Santa who?") Radar tracking of the sleigh's overnight flight last night revealed multiple, multiple WAAS approaches to non-ILS-equipped rooftops. Claus was reached early this morning, just after completing his annual marathon flight in the vintage, reindeer-powered STOL-craft and asked to comment on the challenge. Obviously peeved, he responded:
"What a crock of caribou-poop! Please, ask one of those think-tank geniuses to explain to me how I'm going to manage this one-of-a-kind itinerary on the airlines. Geesh!
"Oh, and Merry Christmas to ALL, and to all a goodnight."

:DMerry Christmas everyone

Does Santa's sleigh weigh more than 12,500 lbs? If so and if TSA gets it's way, pretty soon Santa will have to develop a Large Aircraft Security Program (LASP) and vet all his reindeer against the terrorist watch lists :drool:
