Traditional aerial networks by UAV have several issues such as limited battery capacity and frequent handover caused by time-varying aerial environment. In particular, failure of resolving the handover issue will induce not only unsuccessful seamless handover but also frequent handover attempts. In this paper, an effective coverage decision algorithm is proposed, which aims at providing seamless handover and thus establishing a fully connected aerial network. We further calculate the seamless handover success probability and the false handover initiation probability to evaluate the proposed coverage decision algorithm. We conduct simulation study in order to evaluate the performance of the proposed scheme. Our simulation results show that the proposed scheme is promising for aerial networks.
