Santas Flight Plan for 2011 Posted at Air Traffic Control

Its that time of year again. The international organisation, ICAO, responisiblw for air travel, has just reported that Santa has filed his flightplan for the coming 24 hours. Flightplans like these are made public to help other pilots plan their routes and to allow for air Traffic control around the world understand that a flight is expected.

In what is probably the single most complicated flight organised each year, taking over 24 hours to complete with multiple destinations this heads up is welcome. Its so complicated that NORAD, the air defense authority chips in to help track Santas progress and make sure all remain safe.

This year, NORAD has opened a telephone hotline if you need to know the location of Santa, you can just call in and get an update from the situation room, live.

Dennis arrives at Entrepeneurs Circle meeting

I went to a fantastic event yesterday. It was the November of Nigel Botterills Entrepenuers Circle, held at the National Motorcycle museum, near to Birmingham airport. A day jam-packed with lots of new ideas to help you get planning your business for 2012. You can find out more by visiting the business growth advisors website

However, all work and no play makes for boring, so for each of these events I’ve decided to lay on some transport for those who want it. With the venue being so close to my patch, most people chose to drive themselves, however a few of decided to hitch a ride on a fire engine… not just any fire engine, a PINK fire engine!
