Suislepa Airfield (also given as Tõrva, Torva and Torva North) is a former air base in Estonia located in the village of Suislepa, 15 km (9.3 mi) north of Tõrva. It is an abandoned front-line or maritime bomber base that was mainly used in the 1960s. Some remains of runways and taxiways can be seen on Google Earth satellite imagery.
