Drachten Airfield (Dutch: Vliegveld Drachten) (ICAO: EHDR) is a small general aviation airfield in the Netherlands located in the province of Friesland, 1 NM (1.9 km; 1.2 mi) northeast of Drachten. It has one runway, 08/26, with an asphalt/concrete surface and a length of 950 m (3,117 ft). Customs services are available upon request to allow international flights.
The airfield was constructed in the 1950s by the Philips electronics company, which has a factory in Drachten. In an attempt to provide an avenue for otherwise illegal street races, the airfield is now also used for drag racing.
