Haapsalu Airfield or Kiltsi Airfield (ICAO: EEHU); (Estonian: Haapsalu lennuväli) is a disused airfield in Estonia, located 4 km (2.5 mi) southwest of Haapsalu.[2] It was first built by the Soviets in 1939.[2] During the Soviet era it was an interceptor aircraft base. It was a small fighter airfield with a few revetments. It was home to 425 IAP (425th Interceptor Aviation Regiment) flying up to 38 MiG-23 jets in 1991.[3] The airfield has been abandoned since the Soviet army left it in the early 1990s.[2][4]
