"Aircraft to aircraft exchange of data packages has always seemed logical to me."

Loose Rivets: You are describing an implementation of "mesh networks". The technology I am familiar with has been maturing at a workable level for about 10-15 years or so, and is usually proposed for swarms of robots/UAVs. It is probably the best proposal I have seen on this forum for reliably propagating small amounts of critical data in sparse regions.
