In this paper, we propose to use AANETs (Aeronautical Ad-hoc NETworks) to complement currently used communication systems. An AANET is a network in which every node (aircraft or ground station) is able to relay data to and from other nodes. It allows to extend the range of a ground station by using other aircraft as relays, thus establishing multihops paths between an aircraft and the ground. The main contribution of our study is the performance assessment of classic routing protocols by simulation with replayed real aircraft trajectories. The results of these simulations can serve as reference for further studies. Furthermore, under nominal conditions, AODV has the best performances in terms of reachability. These results demonstrates the interest of AANET as a communication system for civil aviation, and call for further studies to improve the performances of routing algorithms.
