Aerial base stations (ABSs) have gained significant importance in the next generation of wireless networks for accommodating mobile ground users and flash crowds with high convenience and quality. However, to achieve an efficient ABS network, many factors pertaining to ABS flight, governing laws and information transmissions must be studied. In this article, multidrone communications are studied in three major aspects, survivability, coverage, and mobility laws, which optimize the multitier ABS network to avoid issues related to intercell interference, deficient energy, frequent handovers, and lifetime. The article includes simulation results of hierarchical ABS allocations for handling a set of users over a defined geographical area. Several open issues and challenges are presented to provide deep insights into the ABS network management and its utility framework.
