Recently, unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) have grabbed impressive attention from industry and research network, because of the fastergrowth in a wide scope of applications. Especially, UAVs are being utilized to ensure a better solution to a dependable and cost-effective wireless communication network from the sky. The adoption of UAVs has been considered as an alternative supplement of existing cellular networks, to accomplish better transmission efficiency with enhanced coverage and network capacity. This article has represented some wireless communication scenarios where UAVs can be utilized to ensure better coverage, enhancement of efficiency and capacity. After that, to establish the effectiveness of UAVs in wireless communication thepaper has included several performance scenarios (path loss, attenuation, and data rate) after utilizing UAVs in the wireless network. Finally concluded with discussing several challengesfor UAV assisted wireless networks and the scopes of further enhancement of such kind of networks. This article might be informative to those who are engaged in research regarding UAV assisted wireless communication.
