Bakharevka Airport (Russian: Аэропорт Бахаревка) (ICAO: USPB) was an air base in Perm Krai, Russia located 6 km southwest of Perm. Until 1965 this was the major civilian airport in Perm City and handled medium-sized and small aircraft, such as the Li-2, Il-14, An-24, An-2, and Yak-12. After 1965 the major airport was relocated to Bolshoye Savino Airport, which was a military airfield.

Recent satellite images has revealed existence of Russian air force MiG-31 "Foxhound" Interceptors parked on the base.
