I haven't done it, but it's not unthinkable for me. Mostly it's not a tactical thing in the periods I play, but I could see it being so in a science fiction game.

Every now and then – paratroops or drop ships for sci-fi

Might be entertaining to see the Old Guard "Drop in"

Does BoFA's "The eagles are coming! The eagles are coming!" count? Not exactly an "air drop," but they do fly in to (maybe) save the day.
Memoir ‘44 has a "paratrooper" drop for Pegasus Bridge (IIRC).
Other than that, I've not done any "drops" on the tabletop.

I have done so in the past playing WRG 1925-1950. One of the better games I ran was to give the German player 6 moves to enter the board and set up in a D-Day scenario. They arrived only to find American paratroopers already dug in defending the cross roads that had been assigned to the Germans to protect from the beach breakout.

Our WWII scenarios rarely use paratroopers but when they did it was always interesting.
When we used to play 40K it was a fairly frequent event.
