St-Hubert Airport (French: Aérodrome de Saint-Hubert, ICAO: EBSH) is the highest airport of Belgium (elevation 563meters/1,930feet).
It is located just off base from St Hubert Air Base and has been in existence since 1930. In 1958 it became home to the local aeroclub Aeroclub des Ardennes (english: Aeroclub of the Ardennes).

In 1992 the Belgian state transferred the airfield to the Walloon Region. Today the airport has 6 hangars, a contol tower, a meteo office and a restaurant. 6 different flying clubs (including the National Gliding Center CNVV), 30 gliders and 27 aircraft are now based at St Hubert.
