Helix Entry for pocket clearing

Hello! I am having trouble with a pocket toolpath where the helix entry ends before it actually spirals into the part. The toolpath looks good to go, I just need to know how to change the helix depth. I am attaching a picture for more clarity.

What is your desired result; helix down to final depth, retract back up and then take the slot in .05" increments? Or did you want to just helix to each depth instead of the ramp that it's doing?

What were trying to accomplish is to have the tool helix into the stock about .04 or so before it starts making its passes back and fourth in the x-axis. About .03-.04 per stepdown.

You're going to have to make a concession in some area though; it's either a large stepover and ramp pass to each depth, or a helix (as desired) but a first pass thru the middle of the slot and a finish pass:
