Kermanshah Air Base

The Kermanshah Air Base (N3420'45.07" E04709'29.26") is located outside of the city of Kermanshah. This base is maintained by the Islamic Republic of Iran Army, for their aviation assets. Kermanshah is one of the largest Army facilities in the country. The air field is used for both civilian and military needs. Its civilian name is Bakhtaran (also sometimes referred to as Shahid Ashrafi Esfahani). The facility has only one asphalt runway.

As of 2008 Kermanshah was home to an assault squadron, an attack squadron, and a reconnaissance squadron, operating a mix of Bell 214A, AH-1J, AB-205A and AB-206 type helicopters. No fixed wing aircraft were reported to be present.
