Jaunkalsnava air field was an airfield 115 kilometers east 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 consisted of a small runway, and two small platforms to the east of the runway.

No photos of the airfield while in use have been located

Since February 2012 LatvianAirfields and successor site MyAirfields have listed the airfield as a 'completely unavailable for flight operations due to non-aviation activities on the field - buildings on the runway and apron'.
Its outlines are still readily visible in aerial photography, however.

Although not exactly buildings, it is clear from this 2013 photo that the airfield can no longer be used, as walls were built on and next to the runway and aprons (MyAirfields)
