Ryan Airfield , also known as Ryan Field Airport, is a public airport located 10 miles (16 km) southwest of the central business district of Tucson, a city in Pima County, Arizona, United States. According to the FAA's National Plan of Integrated Airport Systems for 2007 2011, it is categorized as a reliever airport.

It is mostly used for general aviation but also serves a significant amount of law enforcement and military helicopter activity. Approximately 50% of Ryan's traffic is training-related. Annual operations for 2007 totaled 249,523, an increase of 23% over 2006.

Although most U.S. airports use the same three-letter location identifier for the FAA and IATA, Ryan Airfield is assigned RYN by the FAA but has no designation from the IATA (which assigned RYN to Royan - Médis Airport in Royan, France).
