Is it possible to install Windows on entire Mac Air's SSD? I am switching to Windows and every MB of space is important for me. If it is possible, does it go like this?
1. Installing Windows using BootCamp.
2. Using Disk Utility in Windows 10 to remove MacOS partition and reallocating the space for Windows partition.
Will this lead to loss of data on Windows partition? Will I be able to boot to Windows without risking my files?

You can't resize the bootcamp
You can't resize the bootcamp partition after it has been created and windows has been installed. There are some awkward ways around this but it's something I did look at when I split my HD down the middle and realised it wasn't the best assignment of storage. Had to remove the partition and then resize. I'd say that a MacBook is not a good option to be used solely as a windows machine, it's always going to be a Mac at its heart and you'll get better compatibility and results with a windows specific box which I believe are fairly inexpensive these days.

I copied my comments on another post with some similar topic:
Today I installed Windows 10 on Mac Air 11 Inch. What was really good about the process is that I could wipe the entire MacOS SSD and install MS Windows. So I was benefiting from every MB available on my SSD. Goodbye MacOS forever!
Something more to note here, I did not get Narrator speaking once the setup start screen where you are required to choose the language for the OS. However when I plugged in 3.5 headphones I could get speak. Note that the left alt on Mac keyboard is just the left Windows button, and the left Windows button is the left alt key. So to start narrator you need to press ctrl+Left windows+Return, the left windows key is just next to the space bar. Of course you can remap these keys after you are fully logged on including the application key!
