The Jeppesen company is no stranger to developing custom aeronautical maps and approach charts for airlines. In 2013, they had a very special request from Santa. Ole St. Nick needed a new, state-of-the-art approach chart for his workshop at the North Pole. Jeppesen answered the call to make sure the sleigh stays safe when arriving back home Christmas morning.

The video below highlights some of the special considerations and features Jepp included when developing the approach.
When I fly over the North Pacific and Alaska, I always review the approach to Santa’s Workshop. You never know when you’ll need an extra special northern alternate!

Great Idea From a Reader!
AeroSavvy reader, Clive Dlima, had a super holiday idea. Clive had the North Pole Village approach printed on canvas to use as a festive AvGeek wall decoration. It looks awesome.
