Stari air field is an abandoned airfield 160 kilometers east of Riga, Latvia.
The airfield was built by the Soviet Union in the 1975-1985 timeframe and used for agricultural activities by state-run Aeroflot. It consisted of a small runway, taxiways and three small platforms to the northeast of the runway.

Latvian Airfields listed the airfields condition as 'bad' in 2010. The airfield appeared to be fairly intact, but its platforms were no longer usable for air operations due to an agricultrural company setting up on them. The runway appearrd to have cracked, with grass growing in the cracs liberally.
In 2016, MyAirfields reported the airfield completely unusable due to piles of sand on the runway.
The airfield is uncertified and therefore officially closed to all traffic.
