A simulation environment was built up to answer questions concerning the availability and performance of aeronautical ad-hoc networks (AAHN). The environment is able to consider basestations on the ground and satellite communication as internet gateways. Worldwide air traffic, with up to tens of thousands of flights per day can be considered in the simulations. For high data throughput, laser communication is envisioned for aircraft to aircraft communication and potentially also for gateway access. As for telemetry, hybridization is required for node localization and “bootstrapping” of connections. In this contribution, AAHN within a fleet of European aircraft are investigated in the context of air-to-ground and satellite infrastructure available today.
