Ämari Air Base (also given in references as Suurküla (original Estonian name), Vasalemma, Emari, Suurkyul, Shuurkyul, and Shuurkul - last forms of the Estonian names are derivates of names Russian-speaking military personnel used when it was used by the Soviet military.") (ICAO: EEEI) is an air base in Harjumaa, Estonia located 7 km south of Lake Klooga. The length of the runway does not include a 250 m overrun at each end.
In Soviet times, Ämari was home to 321 and/or 170 MShAP (321st and/or 170th Naval Shturmovik Aviation Regiment) flying Su-24 aircraft.
Ämari Air Base will be a NATO interoperable airfield in the future. Works to this effect are scheduled for completion in 2012. In September 2010, the renewed runway was officially inaugurated.
Estonian Air Force Air Surveillance Wing was created on 1 January 1998 and is located at the Ämari Air Base.
The Estonian Government has offered the base as a facility to be used to conduct NATO Baltic Air Policing patrols. In April 2014 a team from the United States Air Force's 48th Fighter Wing assessed the air base for this purpose, and Stars and Stripes reported that it was likely that patrols would be conducted from Ämari in the future. On 30 April 2014 this mission began with the arrival of four Danish F-16s.
