Air Bases and airfields
Although the Estonian Air Force inherited a large number of former Soviet Air Force airfields in 1991 during the restoration of independence, most of them were disbanded within in early 90s due to non-existing need for such airfields. The Estonian Air Force has one active air base, which is currently under reconstruction, and occasionally uses a civilian airfield in Tallinn.

Note: Estonia has 13 airports with paved runways (over 3,047 m: 2 2,438 to 3,047 m: 7 1,524 to 2,437 m: 2 914 to 1,523 m: 2), 6 airports with unpaved runways (1,524 to 2,437 m: 2 914 to 1,523 m: 1 under 914 m: 3), and one heliport
