Since the interference is quite related to the performance of CDMA cellular systems, it is necessary to estimate Other-Cell-Interference Factor (OCIF). Here, starting from OCIF calculation for an aeronautical communication system, we investigate the forward link performance of data packet transmission in which the capacity, throughput and delay of the system are measured. To the numerical results, one can see that the performance of the aeronautical communication system is worse than that for terrestrial cellular systems and also depends logarithmically on both the cell radius and height.
