The Hazerim base is a large military airfield of the Israeli Air Force, located west of the city of Be'er Sheva. It incorporates the operational 1st line Fighter Wing as well as the Aviation academy.
Hazerim is the first military airfield designed and built by the Israeli Air Force in the Negev and additionally it is the first military airfield of the force that was not inherited by the British during World War II, but was an original Israeli design.
The pioneering plan of Hazerim was inspired and designed by bases in the Sinai and Negev. The initial thought process and decision-making on the construction was developed after the Suez War in 1956.
