Dhamial Army Airbase (ICAO: OPQS) is a Pakistan Army airbase located in southern Rawalpindi, Pakistan. It is the headquarters of Pakistan Army Aviation. It is commonly referred as Dhamial Camp or Qasim Base.

It was built a few kilometers outside Rawalpindi city, but due to the expansion of the city, it is now surrounded by major colonies, including Askari IIIX. It is frequently used by small aircraft and helicopters. Dhamial Airbase is also used for overhauling helicopters, including Mil Mi 17, Bell 412 and Bell AH-1F Cobra.
