About NK Drone race
When we talk about the contests you will read that the NK Drone Race consists of several contests. These league contests or rankings are all held and flown on outdoor tracks. The competitions take place in the open air, on a meadow in a rural area. This meadow is fit for flying and registered as an airport and is not used in any other way. By registered we mean that the airport is included in the files of the KNVvL.

De Koninklijke Nederlandse Vereniging voor Luchtvaart/ The Royal Dutch Society for Aviation (hereinafter referred to as KNVvL))

The KNVvL was founded in 1907 and owner of the Dutch Drone racing championship further mentioned as NK Drone Race.

The tracks will each time have a different set-up with a varying course and possibly supplemented with special effects.

This way the competition will be challenging o participate in a league contest. You can participate as a participant in all ranking competitions; followed by one "Grand-Finale".

But first the rankings, how do you participate?
Participants have to register each contest so that we know how many pilots participate. Each contest has a maximum of x participants in total.

During all competitions the contest rules as provided to all participants will apply.
This competition regulation has been set up in accordance with the FAI sporting code section4 effective: March 2018

The rankings will start in early April. The rankings are always spread as far as possible across the country at a different location and usually in another province.

What does a competition day look like:
From 09:00 we start processing: registration participants and a technical inspection of your quad, which is followed by a briefing.

During the briefing, the competition management will also explain how a complaint should be reported and how a decision will be taken in case of protests that affect the race.

All participating pilots are obligated to attend the briefing. The ranking starts at 11 o'clock in the morning. So it's important to be on time!

NKDroneRace final
After the rankings, the 32 best pilots will continue to the final and compete for the title Dutch Champion!

During the rankings you can find a total score on our website. If possible we will mark the best 32 at that time who are in the race for the final.
