Different from the traditional terrestrial intelligent reflecting surface (IRS), aerial IRS (AIRS) can provide some unique advantages, such as flexible deployment and wider-view signal reflection. In this paper, a three-dimensional (3D) single cylinder simulation channel model is proposed for AIRS-aided multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) communication systems, where the considered propagation scenario consists of a fixed base station (BS) and a mobile station (MS). Based on the model, the channel impulse response (CIR), spreading function, and channel capacity are derived. Then, some heuristic algorithms are proposed to obtain the phase shifts of the IRS elements. It is found that multipath fading and Doppler effects stemming from the movement of MS can be effectively mitigated via adjusting the tunable phase shifts of the IRS elements. Moreover, the channel capacity of the system could also be improved by the proposed schemes. These findings can be used to lay a foundation for developing intelligent and controllable propagation environments.
