Old Kaduna Airport is an airport serving Kaduna, a city in the Kaduna State of Nigeria.[2] It was replaced by Kaduna Airport, located 10 miles to the northwest.

It appears to be the headquarters of NAF Training Command with a flying training group and a ground training group at the base. The command is chiefly responsible for implementing NAF training policies. Ground training is also provided for support services and technical personnel.[3]
