Balashov (also Balashov Southeast, Balasov) is an air base in Russia located 9 km east of Balashov, Saratov Oblast.

Satellite high-resolution imagery accessed in 2006 showed 65 Antonov An-26 transport aircraft and a few helicopters.

Michael Holm's data as of 2011 appears to suggest that Balashov as of 1990 was home to the 606th Training Aviation Regiment of the Balashov Higher Military Aviation School for Pilots, subordinated to the Air Forces of the Volga-Ural Military District.[1]
