When an enemy helicopter hovers over me, and I grapple on to it, I have to go through a small quick time event to hijack the helicopter. Is there a faster way to take control of enemy helicopters? Going through this routine takes a few seconds to do, and it gets old after a while.

For some boats, I can just shoot both the gunner and the pilot and instantly take control. Is this kind of thing possible with other military vehicles, or am I forced to go through the motions?

Like you mentioned, the only other way to commandeer any vehicles that I'm aware of (helicopters included) is by shooting the driver and jumping in. In the case of a helicopter, it's certainly possible to shoot them, but difficult if you're trying to kill them while grappled below the cockpit. I confirmed this on an attack chopper, in which case I had to shoot the cockpit glass several times before it fell away, at which point I killed the pilot.
