Slampe air field name was an airfield 32 kilometers west of Riga, Latvia.
The airfield was built by the Soviet Union in the 1975-1985 timeframe. It was used for agricultural activities by state-run Aeroflot and consists of a small runway, and a small platform halfway and to the north of the runway. There are no buildings, although photographic evidence suggests there was a hangar-like building at the platform.

No photos of the airfield while in use have been located

Latvian Airfields described the airfields condition in 2010 as 'average'. MyAirfields described the airfield in 2012 as "Runway is in average-bad condition. Western part is highly contaminated by growing grass. In the middle part of the RWY at the taxiway there is pitted asphalt. A big stone on the very SE corner of the RWY. Usage not recommended; suitable for emergency landing"
The airfield is uncertified, meaning it is officially closed to all taffic.
