Estevan Regional Aerodrome, (IATA: YENICAO: CYEN), is located 3 nautical miles (5.6 km; 3.5 mi) north of Estevan, Saskatchewan, Canada.

During World War II the aerodrome was part of the British Commonwealth Air Training Plan. In 1946, more than 20 personnel of the Royal Canadian Air Force were killed at the airport when the C-47 Dakota transport carrying them back to Canada from the U.S. (to which they had been ferrying surplus military trainers) crashed on the airport.
