Andreapol is an air base in Tver Oblast, Russia located 3 km east of Andreapol. It was built as an interceptor aircraft base. It was home to the 28th Guards Fighter Aviation Regiment (28 Gv IAP), which flew MiG-23P aircraft in the early 1990s and soon acquired MiG-29 aircraft.

In 1994 to Andreapol were transferred part of the personnel and aircraft 773rd Guards Fighter Regiment, who joined the 28th Guards Fighter Aviation Regiment. In 2003, during runway repairs at Kubinka the aerobatic teams Russian Knights and Swifts were relocated to Andreapol.
