With the advancing 5G technology of base stations mounted on aerial platforms, such as unmanned aerial vehicles, the issue of coverage area, capacity and inter-cell interference is assuming higher importance for the cellular networks. In this paper, we follow a deterministic approach to analyze these problems using the data obtained using a commercial software for wireless electromagnetic wave propagation. We analyze the above mentioned parameters by varying the threshold of the received power.

Simulations were carried out in three generalized environments, Suburban, Urban and Urban High Rise, developed according to ITU-R parameters. To derive these results we used an air-to-ground channel model obtained from the analysis of simulation data.
