The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has decided to grant Santa Claus and his reindeer-powered sleigh special authority that would allow him to conduct air-cargo-delivery services directly to rooftops throughout the USA on Christmas Eve. It was reported by the FAA's press service.
It was also decided to issue him a special commercial space license for a mission to the International Space Station (ISS). Thus, Santa will be able to conduct his space deliveries using his StarSleigh-1 space capsule powered by the Rudolph Rocket.
“We are pleased to help Santa safely navigate through the National Airspace System to bring his unique and universal brand of good will and joy to children and adults of all ages — even to those orbiting the Earth. Let’s face it, 2020 was a difficult year and we all could use some special holiday cheer that only Santa can deliver,” said FAA Administrator Steve Dickson.
As we reported earlier, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) selected 18 astronauts to form its Artemis Team for the upcoming astronaut missions on and around the Moon.
