Thank you for looking into the issue. In case you come up with a solution related to the aircraft type: Please note that helicopter block time counts as soon as the rotors are turning. For most types they start turning as soon as the first engine is started. So no need for us to log engine start separately. Only piston helicopters and old single-shaft turbines have a clutch but I don't think they log engine time separately.

In my eyes the best solution would be for aircraft type helicopter to have in Go Flying Mode manual log buttons for Off Block and Takeoff, then Landing and On Blocks.
I can't speak for the regular A to B operation but for our work it would be best to have everything between Takeoff and Landing being logged as one continuous flight without automatic landing detected in between and fully manual map zoom.

One more thing maybe worth to consider in this context: I had to do an accelerated departure and didn't have time to set up Skydemon. Once airborne, I switched to Go Flying Mode and couldn't log manually anymore due to automatic take off detection immediately kicking in.

Zwischennetz' problem really affects most helicopter operators, including myself. Zwischennetz describes the behaviour we regularly observe very well.
