santaThe Official NORAD Santa Tracker is hard at work counting down the days, hours and minutes ’til his arrival.   This year on Christmas Eve, you’ll also be able to follow Saint Nick’s progress on Google Maps!    understandingflight

Perhaps you’ve wondered about the aerodynamics of a guy in a sleigh with 8 tiny reindeer?  You’re not alone!  Check out the interesting numbers presented in this article and do your own weight and balance calculation or learn more about the science of flight from our  e-book, Understanding flight.

Maybe Santa actually flies in a Westjet plane?  There’s a town in the Dominican Republic that believes that!   Don’t miss Westjet’s 2014 Christmas miracle video.  It’ll put a big smile on your face and a tear in your eye!
