Nurmsi Airfield (ICAO: EENI); (Estonian: Nurmsi lennuväli) was a Soviet air base in Estonia located 10 km (6.2 mi) east of Paide in Nurmsi. It was a former attack deployment base and was listed on a 1974 U.S. Department of Defense Global Navigation Chart No. 3 as having jet facilities.[1] At the end of the Cold War the airfield was converted into farmland. Very little of the airfield establishment remains today.
