RM5 Million is being spent to develop a 1.27-hectare piece of land into Malaysia’s first National Academy for Drone Sports Excellence (ASKADRON).

The AKSADRON will, among others, have an internationally-recognised drone racing track with space for drone control, spectator area and a tower control, besides being fully equipped with classrooms, workshops, flight simulators and accommodation.

This will make the academy a one-stop centre for all related parties, including technical experts, with drone enthusiasts able to participate in aviation and drone maintenance clinics.

Deputy Finance Minister Datuk Mohd Shahar Abdullah at the groundbreaking ceremony.

AKSADRON, which is expected to open by the end of the year in Tasik Paya, Bungor, Pahang, is being developed on land owned by the Pahang State Development Corporation (PKNP).

The location was chosen for its open space and vicinity to a lake.

AKSADRON is managed by Futurise, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Cyberview Sdn Bhd under the Finance Ministry.

The Malaysian Sports Aviation Federation (MSAF) and Drone Racing Association of Malaysia (DRAM) have been appointed as their advisors.
