In this paper, we study the air-to-ground cellular systems with no frequency reuse. We provide an analysis of the inter-cell interference under idealized assumptions: 3D hexagonal cell planning, a line of sight channel model with no shadowing and idealized antenna patterns. Based on this model, we derive approximate bounds for the inter to intra-cell interference ratio for the air-to-ground link. In addition, we provide upper bounds on the interference and the outage probability for the ground-to-air link. Simulation results are provided to validate the accuracy of the analytical results.
