I have tried to compile a list of cheatsheets for Adobe AIR here.

AIR Cheatsheets from ActionScriptCheatsheet (PDF)
This pdf is a 7-pages long Adobe AIR cheat sheet which was created by Sean Moore at ActionScriptCheatsheet. This guide is a quick reference tool listing out all the languages basics like constants, variables etc. This is a no-nonsense guide  and goes straight to the point. The only extraneous information in this pdf is the Adobe AIR logo ;) . If you are going to be an Adobe AIR developer, I recommend you to take a print out of it, stick it to your desk and refer while programming.

This is not actually a Cheatsheet. Instead, it is a white paper that is written to cater to the executives, project managers, marketers and other visionaries by providing with an introduction to Adobe AIR, and information about how Adobe AIR can be leveraged to create next generation web experiences.

I am sure the above list is no-way exhaustive. If you find any other resource , please enlightnen me. I will add it to this list.
