    I'd say make a genius appointment so they can run diagnostics to see what's going on. You may have a defective device.

    I'm not sure what could be causing this. It could be a hardware problem with the accelerometer.

    That said, there is a Lock Orientation button in Control Center (swipe from the bottom) that will prevent the screen from rotating automatically when not wanted. And if this is the first model of iPad Air, you can bind the Lock Orientation feature to the side switch in Settings > General. (Note: iPad Air 2 and later don't have that physical switch so you need to use Control Center.)
