Never run out of Airspeed, Altitude and Ideas at the same time"

Today was the night before Christmas, and out on the Ramp,
Not an Airplane was stirring, not even a Champ.
The Aircraft were fastened to Tie downs with care,
In hopes that -- come morning -- they all would be there.

The Fuel Trucks were nestled, all snug in their spots,
With gusts from two-forty at 39 Knots.
I slumped at the fuel desk, now finally caught up,
And settled down comfortably, resting my butt.

When the radio lit up with noise and with chatter,
I turned up the scanner to see what was the matter.
A voice clearly heard over static and snow,
Called for clearance to Land at the Airport below.

He barked his transmission so lively and quick,
I'd have sworn that the call sign he used was "St. Nick."
I ran to the panel to turn up the lights,
The better to welcome this magical Flight.

He called his position, no room for denial,
"St. Nicholas One, turnin' left onto final."
And what to my wondering eyes should appear,
But a Rutan-built sleigh, with eight Rotax Reindeer!

With vectors to final, down the Glideslope he came,
As he passed all fixes, he called them by name:
"Now Ringo! Now Tolga! Now Trini and Bacun!
On Comet! On Cupid!" What pills was he takin'?

While controllers were sittin', and scratchin' their heads,
They phoned to my office, and I heard it with dread,
The message they left was both urgent and dour:
"When Santa pulls in, have him please call the Tower."

He landed like silk, with the sled runners sparking,
Then I heard, "Left at Charlie," and "Taxi to parking."
He slowed to a Taxi, Turned off of three-oh,
And stopped on the Ramp with a "Ho, ho-ho-ho..."

He stepped out of the sleigh, but before he could talk,
I ran out to meet him with my best set of Chocks.
His red helmet and goggles were covered with frost,
And his beard was all blackened from Reindeer exhaust.

His breath smelled like peppermint, gone slightly stale,
And he puffed on a pipe, but he didn't inhale.
His cheeks were all rosy and jiggled like jelly,
His boots were as black as a cropduster's belly.

He was chubby and plump, in his suit of bright red,
And he asked me to "fill it, with hundred low-lead."
He came dashing in from the snow-covered pump,
I knew he was anxious for drainin' the sump.

I spoke not a word, but went straight to my work,
And I filled up the sleigh, but I spilled like a jerk.
He came out of the restroom, and sighed in relief,
Then he picked up a phone for a Flight Service brief.

And I thought as he silently scribed in his Log,
These reindeer could land in an eighth-mile fog.
He completed his Pre-Flight, from the front to the rear,
Then he put on his Headset, and I heard him yell, "Clear!"

And laying a finger on his Push-To-Talk,  [ PTT ] 
He called up the Control Tower for Clearance and Squawk.
"Take taxiway Charlie, the Southbound Direction,
Turn right three-two-zero at Pilot's discretion"

He sped down the runway, the bestof the best,
"Your Traffic's a Grumman, inbound from the west."
Then I heard him proclaim, as he Climbed through the night,

"Merry Christmas to all! I have Traffic in Sight."

"Never run out of Airspeed, Altitude and Ideas at the same time"

How can we help: If you can provide quality content and enjoy writing on blogs
 then this is the site for you. Do you want to make some money while doing
something you like then guest blogging can help.

We aim to connect you to other bloggers, journalists and other content
creators in all types of  niches and provide you a gateway so that you can
publish high-quality articles on their blogs.

What is a guest post?

A guest post is a piece of writing the author and the blogger have arranged
to publish on the blogger’s site. The guest post belongs to the author and is
attributed to him. It is up to the author which sites to link to within the
post and it is up to the blog owner to accept/reject the contribution.

So it really is quite  Straight Forward :

The author writes an article and shows it to the blogger / website owner.
A price is agreed between the blogger and website owner.
 The writing is then published on the site and the guest blogger is accredited
 with the post.
(Optionally) The blogger and the author may make arrangements like the
author promotes (i.e. shares) his post once it is published (and thus drives
more traffic to the blogger’s site).

How do bloggers benefit from guest posting?

The blogger expands his reach to the blogger’s audience and this helps to
spread the work of the author, then a website gets a piece of great relevant
content and the blogger /author  gets the credit.

Simple Rules To Follow.

The author should provide unique content (no re-publishing);
A agreement should be made between both parties on to how many links are
allowed within the posts.
The blogger should not edit the author’s article without discussing the edits
with the author (except for minor Grammar mistakes).
All content belongs to the author unless an agreement has been made between
the website owner and blogger.
