Air field Aubry was a German airfield 40 kilometers southeast of Lille and 6 kilometers northwest of Valenciennes in France.
The airfield was built during World War I, and consisted of a flying field and 6 canvas tent hangars, 2 on the north side and 4 on the northeast side. It was located immediately southwest of the Chateau de Malplaquet south of the village Aubry (todays Aubry-du-Hainaut).

Other than its existence on a map made in 1918 not much is known about the airfield. There are no known remains.
