Loukhi-3 is an air base in the Republic of Karelia, Russia located 11 kilometres (6.8 mi) west of Loukhi. It is a minor airstrip with only turnarounds and a 400-meter central taxiway.

Loukhi had some use during World War II and probably maintained forward fighter deployments in the 1950s and 1960s.
