The ideology of the Everest helicopter tour is quite uncommon in Nepal as well as in the whole world due to the following reasons:
Reach the highest vantage point – Kala Patthar
Kala Patthar's viewpoint is the uppermost point that you can reach if you're taking over the trekking path or a helicopter route. It stands at the height of 5644.5 meters above sea level. It offers a crystal clear and closes panoramic view of Mount Everest (8848.86m) and adjoining mountains of the Mahalangur Himalayan ranges.
Flying over the Everest base camp
The name of the trip is Everest base camp helicopter tour but why does the helicopter land on a Kala Patthar rather than base camp? The simple rejoinder is that the base camp is located just above the glacier and the shell is weak enough for non-stop helicopter pick-up and drop-off. Similarly, the view of Mount Everest is uncertain (very less) and in some cases unsatisfactory. So, to stay on the safe side and provide the traveler a beautiful Himalayan view, the helicopter flies over the base camp and lands at high point Kalapatther. Still, the aerial view is excellent.
Landing at Lukla Airport (world's one of the dangerous airports)
Lukla Airport is the most dangerous and highest placed airport in the world at the ultimate height of 2860 meters above sea level. Slippery track, green hills, stunning mountain views, and an array of settlements completely pump up the adrenaline. Similarly, it provides the earliest view of Mount Everest from the ground.

You can observe these mountains from different landing points and also from helicopter flights.
