Is the iPad Air plastic ~ as opposed to aluminium ~ on the back? Is that how it's so much lighter than the iPad 4?

No, the iPad Air is aluminium NOT plastic.
Also, aluminium cases can be thinner than plastic, so there's no actual weight difference. Check the weight of Nokia's polycarbonate (plastic) devices... Heavy.
As far as I remember the big weight saver in the Air is the battery.
Apple managed to squeeze more wroom into less space. Also the screen has something to do with it. Again: I read about the details, and got bored
