The former Royal Air Force Station Fassberg, or RAF Fassberg, was a Royal Air Force station (airbase) in Germany situated in the northern suburbs of Fassberg, Lower Saxony. The RAF disestablished the station and was closed down in January 1957, formally handed over from the 23 LAA RAF Regiment to the German Air Force.

It is now Faßberg Air Base (German: Heeresflugplatz Faßberg, IATA: FSB, ICAO: ETHS), and home to the German Army Aviation Corps "Army Aviation Transport Helicopter Regiment 10".
