Kyiv Chaika Airfield (Ukrainian: Аеродром «Київ Чайка», also given as Kyiv West) is an airport in Ukraine located in Petropavlivska Borshchahivka (Kyiv-Sviatoshyn Raion, Kyiv Region), about 15 km (9 mi) west of Kyiv. It is a general aviation airfield with Antonov An-2, An-28, and other single-engine aircraft. There is a paved 150 x 45 m tarmac ramp.

It is an integral part of the Seagull Sports Complex. An aeroclub is based at the airport, training parachutists and beginners training under the United States Air Force Academy program.[1] The sports complex is adjacent to the suburban residential complex of the same name, which got its name because of its proximity to the airfield.[2]
