Froidchapelle Airfield (French: Aérodrome de Froidchapelle, EB0001 - old ICAO; EBEH) was a small airfield on the banks of the Eau d'Heure Lakes near Froidchapelle in the province of Namur in Belgium.
The airfield was founded in 1960. Most of the airfields functions were taken over by Cerfontaine in 2008-2009 as Froidchapelle was deemed to be too close to the Eau d'Heure Lakes.
The only aviation related activity remaining at the field today is parajumping.

On 28 July 2017, the airfield reopened as a seaplane/floatplane base. Several months earlier, on 17 March 2017, the first aircraft (G-VWET) had already been ferried to its new home from Cannes. The first official water landing took place on 23 April. The seaplane base is run by the Belgian Seaplane Aeroclub.
