The pilot was taxiing the aircraft to the terminal when he became momentarily distracted, thus allowing the aircraft do drift about one metre to the right. As he returned his attention to the taxi line, he noticed that there was a stationary helicopter in his peripheral vision. He attempted to stop but the right propeller contacted a rotor blade and the right wingtip impacted the windshield of the helicopter.
