Aircrafts in commercial routes have been proposed in some previous work as a novel DTN bundle carriers. Satellites can be one of the hops in this application. DTN suffers from intermittent disconnections, long delays and has scarce resources. It is a challenge to control the admission to these resources to provide better QoS and ensure optimum resource utilisation. Furthermore, providing fairness to different users who compete to access limited and scarce resources makes the solution even harder. In this paper, we propose a fair novel admission control model for DTN aircrafts applications based on feedback history logging of past admissions. This model will locally estimate the resources and provide fair admissions for users within a group of users in the same area. We will show an analysis of aircrafts fair admission control design for both aircraft initiated and user initiated approaches, which will provide integrated service per flow basis. The paper also presents the initial simulation model using a modified version of DTN2 emulator and DTNperf_2 performance monitoring tool.
