AANET (Aeronautical Ad hoc NETworks) are a subclass of Vehicular Ad-Hoc Networks (VANET). They are a very promising solution in order to answer to new air-ground communication needs. The Publish / Subscribe communication paradigm enjoys wide applicability in AANET where resources are limited. Many Publish / Subscribe systems exist for wired networks, however, these solutions are not fully adapted to mobile networks like AANET or VANET composed of cars. For the second category, the research community investigated and proposed some solutions. The aim of this article is to evaluate the performance of typical Publish / Subscribe systems suitable for VANET with cars on AANET with a realistic scenario based on commercial aircraft traffic. We show that some approaches suitable for VANET do not give good results in this case.
