I want to make sure this is a legal move,

If the axis controls Novgorod but Soviets control all the swamps and Lenningrad can I make an airborne assault from Lenningrad to Helsinki?

I don't see any reason I couldn't (assuming the weather is clear/lt mud).

What do other people think?

If the airborne is my last unit and helsinki is empty do people think it's worth it? I'd be trading lenningrad (lose one WERP but would also not pay 1 for fleet maintinence) but would eliminate all finnish blocks.

ALWAYS make the move with the airborne! It has a tendency to cut off the entire Russian army...

I'm not convinced. I don't think there's an air-route between Leningrad and Helsinki, and they're three spaces apart. (Leningrad and Novgorod count as entirely separate spaces when they are not controlled by the same player.) If it were within range, of course it would be a good move. I'd say knocking out the Finns is well worth losing Leningrad for the moment.

In the latest map air-routes are printed on the map and one points to the port that is lenningrad to estonia but not helsinki so I guess that means it's not in range?

Correct - not in range.
