Any UK airspace users expecting to fly this coming Thursday night are being told to be aware of the presence of a vintage flying sleigh travelling at high speed around the country.
The sleigh, described as performing ‘high energy manoeuvres,’ will be unable to comply with the normal rules of the air. Air crews are also recommended to be on alert when transiting areas with ‘high concentrations of chimneys.’
Earlier this month, NATS released a video showing the behind the scenes work that goes into Santa’s flight plan each year. With Christmas Eve now fast approaching, it’s important for pilots and crews to be prepared.
Wishing you all a very happy Christmas from NATS – safe flying!
