With the development of newer and more developed technologies in assisting humans by robots the most advanced and efficient way is by air. Robots cannot assist humans in all times since there are times where robots that move in floors cannot help in complex and rough terrain, hence the only way to assist humans everywhere is through air, thus robot that can fly can.
