IAF airbase Palmachim is an Israeli airbase and spaceport located near the village of the same name at the coast.
The base hosts several IAF helicopter and UAV squadrons and serves as an Arrow airdefense missile launchsite.
Palmachim is also used to launch the Shavit space launch vehicle into retrograde orbit by launching over the Mediterranean, acting as Israel's primary spaceport. This ensures that rocket debris falls into water and that the rocket does not fire over countries near Israel

Units:
- 124 sqn (UH-60A, S-70A),
- 151 sqn (AD msl),
- 155 sqn (UAV-Global Hawk/Predator),
- 160 and 161 sqn (AH-1E/F) and 200 sqn (UAV).
