The Prizes

We have endeavored to line up the coolest prizes possible for you! This is what you can win:


First Place

For the first place winner, we are giving away a 3,5 hour simulator session provided by Simflying Amsterdam!

Have you ever wondered what it is like to be in control of a large aircraft? This is your chance! Experience how it feels to pilot a static Boeing 737NG simulator. The session is guided by an experienced instructor; depending on your experience, you can get to know the basics, improve your skills or fly challenging exercises. The winner can bring along up to 2 additional people.


Second Place

It is one thing to look at planes in textbooks, but another to walking up to an actual aircraft. The runner-up winner and one companion will be able to visit the rich collection of aircraft at Aviation Museum Aviodrome at Lelystad Airport, with two entrance tickets provided by Aviodrome. From the Wright Flyer to a giant Boeing 747 and of course many Dutch Fokker aircraft, this is a great way to see what aerospace engineering has developed over the past century!

Third Place

Of course we hope you are proudly wearing the Lustrum NDVR merchandise by now. If not, the third place winner will receive a set of the long-sleeve shirt and socks provided by the VSV!

If you are not the lucky winner of this set, do not despair. You can still buy your shirt (both female/male version), sliders, socks and tie at the VSV Bookshop! A great outfit for the Lustrum-month in May.



Additional Prizes!

All winners will also receive a 1:200 scale model of KLM’s special livery Boeing 777, the ‘Orange Pride’,  provided by [email protected] 

Located in the public shopping area of Schiphol Airport, [email protected] offers a wide range of aircraft scale models and other aviation related articles and souvenirs. Part of the shop is built out of an original DC-9 cockpit and DC-10 engine, so this might also be a great location to take your picture 😉
