Aeronautical ad hoc networks (AANET) support IoT while allowing communication between aircraft and the ground in flight systems. Current research is focused on aeronautical data-based IoT applications thus leaving the gap between benefits and services of IoT objects and aeronautical objects. In the present scenario, quality of service provisioning is the most prominent requirements in aeronautical flight communication systems. For this perspective, in this paper we propose QoS aware routing protocol (QSRP) to enhance network performance in Aeronautical ad hoc networks assisted IoT environment. The proposed QSRP includes two QoS metrics: route availability period and residual route load capacity for route finding process and describes a broadcast optimization technique to reduce traffic overhead. Finally, the performance of the proposed QSPR is compared with AODV and GPSR in terms of ground connectivity, packet delivery ratio and route load balancing. The simulation results prove that the performance of QSRP is better as compared to state of arts protocols.
