This paper develops a prediction model for evaluating the influence of propagation attenuation due to aircraft's flying across the earth-satellite link. This prediction model is based on the Aperture-field method of Huygens-Fresnel wave theory. Considering arriving and taking off course around airport, attenuation impairment is calculated for different types of aircrafts and flight directions. In order to verify this model's accuracy, numerical results are compared with measurement values. The calculations agree well with the measurements. Ground antenna directivity and anticipated impairment to digital broadcasting system such as Perfect TV are also discussed.
