An aircraft is a vehicle that uses support from the air to take flight. The most popular examples of aircrafts are airplanes, helicopters, airships, blimps, and hot air balloons. Aircrafts use either static lift or the dynamic lift of an airfoil to counter the force of gravity to fly. Aircrafts can be manned by a pilot and onboard crew or unmanned by remotely controlled or self-controlled by computers in aerial vehicles. The first manned ascent and safe descent of aircrafts occurred in large hot-air balloons in the 18th century. Today aircrafts are used in the military, commercial sectors, or for experiments.

Santa’s Sleigh

Santa’s Sleigh is Santa’s most important piece of equipment. In the run up to Christmas, Santa’s elves help load the sleigh with presents for every boy and girl in the world (the ones who celebrate Christmas), making sure they are secure and in the correct order for delivery. They rein up Santa’s twelve magical reindeer to pull the sleigh, so on Christmas Eve night, Santa can ride the sleigh into the sky. The sleigh is led by the reindeer Rudolph, who has a bright red nose that lights up their way.

Santa’s Sleigh is 6’ (1.83 m) tall with an overall length of 28’8” (8.75 m).
