Augstkalne air field (ICAO: EVMA) was an airfield close to the town of Augstkalne, 75 kilometers southwest 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, a small platform and a hangar-like building to the southeast of the runway

Latvian Aviation lists the airfields condition as 'fairly good'. 
MyAirfields described its condition in 2013 as 'average', stating "Runway is in fairly good condition. Nice surroundings and easy approach to RWY06. Visually can be found by Augstkalne town, mast and a small lake."
The airfield is owned by the municipality of Augstkalne, but uncertified, meaning it is officially closed to all taffic.
