Hi Michapdm,
I understand that you would like to use squid to offer secured web browsing to your client. At least protected from snooping while on the AIR link.

I don't think squid can do that. You would be better served using some VPN. I think you should look into pptpd or OpenVPN.

Or you could use ssh with port forwarding as described in this article: http://www.howtoforge.com/linux_secure_browsing_squid

I'm not sure if you can do it (you might need to fool with dns and such too), but you might look into squid as a "reverse proxy" and see if you can set that up.  (You'd basically be trying to "reverse proxy" the whole Internet.)

What is described works with a Windows client, but I don't think that is what you are asking about.  What the article states is that you set up a secure ssh tunnel from your client machine to the squid server on another network.  You then send all your web traffic through that encrypted tunnel.  It will work well for a savvy technical user, but not as general encryption for your wi-fi spot.
