Indonesia is a vast country consisting of 34 provinces and 17,504 islands. Each region has a diverse geographic background. In addition, the uneven development of infrastructure which causes the transport logistics to face various challenges and problems. In the health sector, time is an essential factor in the provision of emergency health needs. Therefore, the distribution of health needs, such as medicines, blood, and medical devices, should be a major concern in improving the quality of health services. In the face of the current distribution of various problems, such as congestion, infrastructure, natural disasters, and the travel time, we propose an alternative solution in solving this problem. The solution is a drone that can perform the unhindered distribution of health needs based on location coordinates of the given location. These drones in the call healthcopter are expected to improve the quality of health services in Indonesia. Healthcopter can be accessed via mobile device applications that can receive requests from various places. This research has produced Healthcopter consisting of drones and application delivery medical needs. The Healthcopter has tested the travel time and speed based on the distance and weight of the load that can be transported by the drone. The heavier the drone load, the longer the travel time and the lower the speed. Similarly to distance, the greater the drone mileage, the longer the travel time and the lower the speed.
