Santa himself wouldn't have one. That's down to the captain and f/o: Rudolpho and Rudolpha  Smile

I thought that Santa already had a callsign, and that he was using it when going from the cooold London to the waaarm Barbados  Laugh out loud

.. not to mention that he had parked the reindeers and used Concorde instead ;D

No, no, no!  Wink/being sarcastic

Santa's callsign would just be 'Santa'.  Wink/being sarcastic

'After the Reindeer 737 on short finals has landed, cleared to line-up and wait 09R, Santa 1303'.

'Santa 1303, the surface wind 336 7 kts, cleared for takeoff 09R'.

'Cleared for takeoff 09R, Santa 1303'.

Has a certain ring to it, eh?

'Tower, good afternoon, Santa 1303 with you, ready for departure from 09R'.


'Santa 1303, good afternoon. After the Reindeer 737 has departed, line-up and wait 09R, Santa 1303'.

'Tower, Santa 1303'.

'Santa 1303, go ahead'.

'After which Reindeer 737 are we meant to line-up?'

'The Reindeer 737 with the red nose'.

'Roger, after the Reindeer 737 with the red nose, cleared to line-up and wait 09R, Santa 1303'.

'Santa 1303, the surface wind 336 7 kts, cleared for takeoff 09R'.

'Cleared for takeoff 09R, Santa 1303'.

'Santa 1303, contact London on 123.45'.

'London 123.45, Santa 1303. C ya next Christmas'.

Has a certain ring to it, eh? Hmm. I need to get out more. :-P

707CMF, I thought Santa had six engines actually, not a twin. He has a helluva lot of presents to haul around  Smile So perhaps the callsign would be Presex (Presents Express).... Somebody worked out he has to deliver to 8 houses a second! By the way, does he have fly-by-wire these days or is it still the old reins? Ho ho ho.

Santa, Santa One, or maybe Kringle. Or perhaps whatever the rego for the sled is (much like with GA a/c).

Reggaebird- I think snowflake is used. Does SAS use the callsign SAS or Snowflake for the Snowflake flights?

My vote: Red Sleigh One.

However, if Santa were taking off from the North Pole, wouldn't he necessarily be taking off on rwy 18?

I liked HoHo.

"Roger, Control. Climb to F L 120 and maintain."

"Merry Christmas, HoHo 151."

"Roger. And to all a Good Night."
