Files that contain the .air file extension are most commonly used for Adobe AIR applications. AIR is an acronym for Adobe Integrated Runtime. These files allow developers to build Internet applications that can be deployed to the user's desktop and can run across multiple operating systems. The AIR files are usually compressed using ZIP technology before they are installed on a user's system.
The .air file extension is also used for Microsoft Flight Simulator files. These files contain information about particular aircraft models that can be used in various flight simulation applications.
AIR also stands for Automated Image Registration. These AIR files are used by a program suite created by Roger P. Woods. The Automated Image Registration program analyzes volume files.
