Not sure if this is a bug, but it's possible to stop helicopters in mid air as they are descending on a heliport (though not while they are ascending). Also, if you stop a helicopter with a breakdown it is fixed upon restart.
This task depends upon

Now this is just a thought (and more of a feature request)... Normally when you try and stop aircraft during flight you just get a "Cant stop/start etc etc..." message. Would it not be better to have the aircraft stop when it reaches it's next destination?
