Santa's Flight Exam


Santa Claus, like all pilots, gets regular visits from the Civil
Aviation Safety Authority and it was shortly before Christmas 
when the CASA examiner arrived. In preparation, Santa had the 
elves wash the sled and bathe all the reindeer.Santa got his 
logbook out and made sure that all of his paper work was in order.
The examiner walked slowly around the sled. He checked the reindeer
harnesses,the landing gear, and Rudolf's nose. He painstakingly 
reveiwed Santa's weight and balance calculations for the sled's 
enormous payload. Finally they were ready for the checkride. Santa
got in, fastened his seat belt and shoulder harness, and checked 
the compass. Then the examiner hopped in carrying, to Santa's 
suprise, a shotgun. "What's that for?!!" asked Santa incredulously.
The examiner winked and said, " I'm not supposed to tell you this 
but you're gonna lose an engine on takeoff."
