Santa’s Sleigh – Freeware

Spread ho-ho-holiday cheer in the world of FSX: Steam Edition with this cute little Santa’s sleigh freeware add-on from Patrice Grange (via Simviation)

The sleigh and reindeer aren’t animated as you would expect, but its great fun flying around in the snow regardless. Sleighs don’t have flaps or landing gear, however you must still use the landing gear key “G” when landing (a green light will come on). Landing speed is between 120-130 kts.


  • Jingle bell sounds
  • Custom panel
  • A team of reindeer
  • Drag chute (activated with the spoiler key, “/”)
  • Festive landing lights
