Drachten Airfield (Dutch: Vliegveld Drachten, ICAO: EHDR) is a general aviation airfield near the city of Drachten. The airfield was constructed in the 1950s by Philips Electronics, which owns a factory in Drachten. Today, the airfield is run by the 'Stichting Vliegveld Drachten', who have the airfield on loan from the municipality of Smallingerland. The airfield is the home of Ultralight flying club Fryslân.
Customs services are available upon request to allow international flights. At the airfield official car races are held regularly, including legal dragraces, intended to counter illegal street racing.
