Advice from One of the World’s Top Drone Pilots: An Interview with 2018 DRL Allianz World Champion Paul “Nurk” Nurkkala

Recommended Posts

Last Thursday the Drone Racing League (DRL) announced Paul “Nurk” Nurkkala as the 2018 DRL Allianz World Champion. The final race of the season aired on ESPN, and is currently airing internationally in more than 75 countries throughout the world.

While training to become the champion Nurkalla put in grueling, 10-hour days, and ultimately beat out some of the best drone pilots in the world for the title, including 2x winning DRL Allianz World Champion Jordan “Jet” Temkin.

I recently got to interview Nurk and ask him about his training regimen, how he became one of the best drone racing pilots in the world, and what advice he has for up-and-coming pilots out there.

You can read the interview the interview here.
