hello and welcome :) I'd use a combination of the following:

  1. Area particle effect with dust, grass,mild air distortion etc... activated when the helicopter is within a certain distance of the ground... done right, very low performance cost

  2. Wind effect actor combined with foliage specifically set up to respond to wind actors... medium performance cost

  3. Maybe even a force actor, to push against objects, AI and players in the immediate vicinity of the landing... low performance cost

You can find tutorials on how to set up all of these... 2 & 3 are fairly straightforward to set up, 1 will take a moderate amount of skill with particle FX to look right
