Broadband communication for aircraft passengers is facing one of the most promising markets of near future. While currently systems introduced in L and Ku band are already limited in bandwidth considering service provisioning to several airline fleets, this paper will adopt optical free space communications for aeronautical communication. Based on general design and network issues, a proof of concept for different optical aeronautical satellite terminals is given. Beam separation and technological implementation examples are provided and compared to today’s microwave implementations. Link budget calculations taking atmospheric propagation into account are concluding the overall system concept.
