Rzhevka Airport (Russian: Аэропорт Ржевка) (IATA: RVHICAO: ULSS) was an airport in Leningrad Oblast, Russia located 15 km east of Saint Petersburg. During its last years in operation, it serviced general aviation and small transport aircraft.

The airport was officially closed in 2007 and its runways are currently used as dealer car parking. A Soviet-made Il-14 and a few smaller aircraft have been abandoned on the apron since then.[1]
