The FAA has cleared Santa and his sleigh for take-off on his annual Christmas flight.
Agency spokesman Frasier Jones says Santa's sleigh and his reindeer are in top working order and he's been cleared for unlimited flight operations.
Jones says air traffic controllers will use the latest technology to guide Santa and allow him to pick the most efficient routes.
And this is no ordinary sleigh. It's equipped with a computerized cockpit, global positioning satellite equipment and an inflight de-icing system.
