Out of the Air is an album by the Irish uilleann pipes player Davy Spillane, that was originally released on Tara Music in 1988. Allmusic awards this album with 4 stars.[1]

Following the release of his 'Atlantic Bridge' album, Uilleann Piper Davy put together a touring band including, Anto Drennan on Guitar, James Delaney on keyboards, Tony Molloy on bass, Paul Moran on drums. While on a UK tour the band recorded a session for BBC Radio One. Even though the session was recorded in the BBC studios with no audience it has since its release been regarded as a live recording. Additional studio sessions which included Rory Gallagher were added before the album's release.[2] [3]
