Stalbe air field is an abandoned airfield 70 kilometers northeast 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, taxiways and three small to medium sized platforms to the north of the runway.

In 2011, Latvian Airfields listed the airfield as 'Uncertified aerodrome generally not suitable for flight operations'.
From what can be seen in Google Earth the airfields runway and platform were in a reasonable shape before 2003.
MyAirfields considered the airfield 'average', stating "Usage is not recommended due to obstacles and timber activities in the airfield territory. There are bushes on both sides of the runway, however the runway itself is in fairly good condition."
The airfield is uncertified and therefore officially closed to all traffic.
