QGIS version 2.10 / Ubuntu 14.04 LTS

You can use this tool https://github.com/openAIP/airspace-converter to convert the airspace data to openAIR format. QGIS is able to import data in openAIR format.

If you only need data for a specific country, contact me. I can give you access to the shapefiles for the particular country.

openAIP version 2 will also provide shapefiles.
