Davison Army Airfield or Davison AAF is a military use airport serving Fort Belvoir, in Fairfax County, Virginia, United States.

The airfield is located 15 mi (24.1 km) southwest of Washington, D.C. It was named for noted World War II aviation engineer Brig. Gen. Donald Angus Davison.

The airfield provided support for Army One from 1957 to 1976 for presidents Dwight Eisenhower, John F. Kennedy, Lyndon Johnson, Richard Nixon, and Gerald Ford. Its role of support for the presidential helicopter ended in 1976 when responsibility for the helicopter was transferred entirely to the United States Marine Corps and the presidential helicopter was renamed Marine One.
