https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_ultralight_helicopters

As part of Mars planet exploration, could there be aviation i.e. airplanes, helicopters flights possible on the planet?

Can customised ultralight helicopters be designed, constructed, tested and later deployed on Mars planet for flight run?

Thanks & Regards,

Here's the issue with airplanes, helicopters flying on mars:

Compared to Earth, the air on Mars is much thinner at the surface, with pressure less than 1% of Earth's at sea level, requiring a more efficient method to achieve lift. Offsetting that disadvantage, Mars air, mostly consisting of carbon dioxide (CO 2), is denser per unit of volume than Earth air, and gravity on Mars is less than 40% of Earth's.
