This paper presents an extensive insight into error protection techniques for free space optical links, focusing in particular in aeronautic stratospherically applications. The long distances present in these scenarios along with challenging atmospherically conditions present significant obstacles that degrade link performance. Thus it is imperative to apply highly efficient error protection scheme to avoid unacceptably high loss rates. The goal was to design a point-topoint data link layer
