Plāņi air field is an abandoned airfield 125 kilometers northeast of Riga, Latvia.
The airfield was built by the Soviet Union in the 1975-1985 timeframe and was used for agricultural activities by state-run Aeroflot. It consisted of a small runway, taxiways and a medium sized platform to the northwest of the runway.

Plāņi is listed at MyAirfields as 'unusable - due to many obstacles'. It continues: "The runway surface and aprons are in very good condition. A lot of trees have grown around the runway making the airfield inaccessible for aircraft."
It is uncertified and therefore officially closed to all traffic.

This 2013 photo of Plāņi airfield clearly demonstrates that only a chainsaw will make the airfield available for operations again (MyAirfields)
