The enormous growth and demand for in-flight Internet access has driven the need for producing effective simulation tools in order to identify effectively the best resources, such as satellites and gateways, for routing in these large-scale systems. We introduce a simple simulation tool called Aerouter, which can assist in identifying the best satellites and gateways for routing in aeronautical applications. The proposed simulation tool includes new routing techniques and also takes Doppler and atmospheric attenuations into account in its automatic calculations. Preliminary results illustrate the effectiveness and usefulness of Aerouter for future in-flight Internet access networks.
