Airview Base was a small UNSC outpost near Sword Base on the Babd Catha Ice Shelf on Reach, named so because it overlooks the base's airfield. It included one anti-aircraft turret before the Battle of Reach began.

The base was later overrun by Covenant forces, who would later place two Tyrants at its location. On August 29, Noble Six and a squad of ODSTs passed through what remained of the base in a Scorpion, destroying the two Tyrants on the way to Sword Base, clearing the sky for Noble Team's Falcons.
- Airview Base's location was a seen as a very good defensive location by both the UNSC and the Covenant as both factions placed AA turrets on it.
- Airview Base (after the Covenant gain control of the area) is used as the setting for the Firefight map Outpost with the addition of two Covenant AA guns.
