The investigation of current transformers for measurements of beam current for relativistic electrons in air is presented in this report. The industrial CW electron accelerator "Rhodotron" ( E = 5 MeV, I = 1-16 mA) was used for experiments. The effect of scanning electron beam allows pulsed current transformers to be used for measurements of beam current. The comparison of beam current measurements in air and vacuum conditions is given. Analysis of errors is discussed.
