Castelvetrano Airfield is an abandoned World War II military airfield in Sicily, which is located approximately 1 km southwest of Castelvetrano. The airfield was a former Italian Air Force (Regia Aeronautica) base, which was seized by the United States Army during the Invasion of Sicily (Operation Husky), and used as part of Sicilian Campaign as well as the Allied Invasion of Italy in 1943.

When the Americans moved out the airfield was closed and dismantled. Today, the main runway of the airfield is clearly visible in aerial photography, but no structures of other components of the airfield remain.
