Sukka Moor Airfield was a small airstrip located approximately halfway between the Orkney and Shetland Islands, constructed on the island of Fair Isle during World War II in the area bounded by Sukka Moor to the west, and Homis Dale to the east. The single runway was visible in RAF aerial photography dating from 1942.

The airstrip has survived on the island, and remains in use as the Fair Isle Airfield (IATA: FIE, ICAO: EGEF), with a 486 metre (1,594 ft) gravel runway. The airfield provides facilities for public transport flights for passengers, and for flying instruction as authorised by the licensee, The National Trust For Scotland, but is not licensed for night flying.
