Strictly speaking you can store some energy without the air gap but the permeability of magnetic materials such as ferrite is so much higher than free space that energy storage is negligible in the magnetic material. The gap does not have to be air just non-magnetic and it can be distributed into a number separate gaps, including microscopic ones.

Yes bro the gap is a way for tunning the transformer to the power you want it to have... since the flux gets unchanged while you gap it the gap can reduce the inductance without reducing the flux but extending the flux that can be handled by the core. 

this is just as you said you can control the energy of the flyback pulse.

good one! great links too! thanks Steve
