I have read on here that air bubbles are most likely to be caused by being a bit too vigorous in your beating, or not having enough in your mixer bowl. Suggestions I have heard are to try slowly beating your buttercream until the air bubbles are worked out, and also making sure that when you make it, you make enough to cover the whole of the beater while mixing.
Hope this helps, and I'm sure more experienced folks will chime in :-)
As Melrose315 states to use the paddle and not the whipper attachment. Or you can also use your plastice spactula and slowly turn over the buttercream. This assisted me quite a bit in the beginner until I bought myself the paddle attachment. This is all great learning experience although frustrating at times. Hang in there.
