The Air Elemental acts as the air unit for Elementals. It functions very differently from other units and is underrated whereas the fire works almost exactly like the archer. Therefore the fire is favored among most players. But this doesn't mean the air is useless.
Like all the basic Elementals, Air appears as a basic stick figure with its respective element for its head - air and lighning in this case.

The Air attacks from above, without using a projectile, meaning tanks cannot block the attack. This can be useful to get rid of archers behind swordwraths/speartons.
However, because the Air pauses its attack whenever told to change unit it can both be kited and is incapable of kiting itself. This weakness can be avoided by targeting a unit before it comes into range, in order to avoid the long retargeting time.
Even when using this technique, the air's attack is still slow. However, it's very high damage potential makes up for it.
It is very effective in mid-game and early-game if used correctly. The air has a slightly shorter range than archidons. However, the air is faster than the archer, so it's speed makes up for this as well.
Air's can have a monopoly over the air in early game against order, as albowtross are too expensive to purchase in the early game, so this can be used to force the opponent away as the only units they will be able to aim at Airs with are archers, the projectiles of which can be easily blocked by elemental's tank units.
All air combinations are spellcasters, except blind gate.
