Kiev Chaika Airfield (Ukrainian: Аеродром „Київ Чайка”, also given as Kiev West) is an airport in Ukraine located in Petropavlivska Borshchahivka (Kiev-Sviatoshyn Raion, Kiev Region), about 15 km (9 mi) west of Kiev. It is a general aviation airfield with Antonov An-2, An-28, and other single-engine aircraft. There is a paved 150 x 45 m tarmac ramp.
