Rtishchevo is an air base in Russia located 6 km northwest of Rtishchevo. It is a former L-410 training base. Very few structures exist near the airfield.

Michael Holm's data as of 2011 appears to suggest that Rtischchevo as of 1990 was home to the 666th Training Aviation Regiment of the Balashov Higher Military Aviation School for Pilots, subordinated to the Air Forces of the Volga-Ural Military District.[1]
