Integral representations are considered of solutions of the inhomogeneous Airy differential equation $w''-z,w=pm1/pi$. The solutions of these equations are also known as Scorer functions. Certain functional relations for these functions are used to confine the discussion to one function and to a certain sector in the complex plane. By using steepest descent methods from asymptotics, the standard integral representations of the Scorer functions are modified in order to obtain non-oscillating integrals for complex values of $z$. In this way stable representations for numerical evaluations of the functions are obtained. The methods are illustrated with numerical results.
