Grenctāle air field (also known as Lacupe airfield) was an airfield 70 kilometers south of Riga, Latvia.
Located only 2 kilometers from the Lithuanian border and 200 meters east of the A7 highway, the airfield was built by the Soviet Union in the 1975-1985 timeframe for agricultural activities of state-run Aeroflot. It consisted of a small runway, a taxiway to three small platforms and a hangar-like building to the south of the runway.

Since February 2012 Latvian Aviation listed the airfield as "completely unavailable for flight operations due to dismantled runway".
