If I remember correctly a child will automatically become an air bender as long as it's in their bloodline..
Other elements are random. I think.

The air nomads were the only bending group to be all benders because of their culture being so spiritually stimulating. So since the culture is pretty much dead and the only people left to mate with are non airbenders and not part of the culture then the likelihood of birthing an airbender was reduced to more closely resemble the other elements.

I'd argue against that actually. We have no reference beyond Tenzin's offspring, and the dude isn't exactly shooting blanks. he's pretty much 10 for 10 on this one.

But that also means any non-bender who becomes exceptionally spiritual has the potential to become a Wind-Bender (as you're able to bend based upon your connection to nature and the spirits)

They keep it alive on his island, they all wear airbender robes, are vegetarians, and their are the air acolytes who train in the spiritual side of air bending even though none of them are air benders.

The spirituality aspect of the airbenders culture is what makes them benders, not a dominant trait. The idea is that if they have bender blood, they will be a bender, however aangs children could be air or water benders. It's possible that a child born of a union of an airbender and non-bender would always result in an airbender, as it has with tenzin's first 3 children
