Notes from before the conversion: Helos will land at the nearest "H" or "Invisible H", if there is one around (within 500m in ArmA).
=\SNKMAN/=
To make a helicopter LAND correctly and not hovering over the landing position use unitReady to check if the helicopter already has reached his destination. You can fix a landing bug by using a short delay bevore checking the unitReady command.
_helicopter move (getPos _destination);

sleep 3;

while { ( (alive _helicopter) && !(unitReady _helicopter) ) } do
{
       sleep 1;
};

if (alive _helicopter) then
{
       _helicopter land "LAND";
};
