Abstract: We use a dynamical and radiative model to investigate electron-positron pair production by γγ collisions in weakly radiative accretion flows around supermassive rotating black holes. We build an analytical and time-dependent model of the electron-positron wind starting from the black hole horizon and extending to pc-scale distances. Our model is a step towards understanding production of relativistic jets from sub-Eddington supermassive black holes.
