I am making a 2d platformer. The player can jump higher by holding the jump button. The play stops moving up when the jump button is released, but the player can slow their jump by mashing the jump button. How can I stop this? This is the code.

extends KinematicBody2D

var motion = Vector2()
var airjump = 0.2
var airtime = 0.2
var cutjumpheight = 0
const MOE = 0.2
const CTIME = 0.2
const SPEED = 300
const GRAVITY = 60
const JUMPHEIGHT = -750
const UP = Vector2(0,-1)

#move right and left whenthe arrow keys are presed
func _physics_process(delta):
    motion.y += GRAVITY
    if Input.is_action_pressed("ui_right"):
        motion.x = SPEED
    elif Input.is_action_pressed("ui_left"):
        motion.x = -SPEED
        motion.x = 0

    #Timer to dimtermine if the player inputed the jump button recently
    airjump -= get_process_delta_time()
    if Input.is_action_just_pressed("ui_up"):
        airjump = CTIME
    #Timer to see if the player was on the floor recently
    airtime -= get_process_delta_time()
    if is_on_floor():
        airtime = MOE

    #Tells the game to jump
    if airtime > 0 && airjump > 0:
        motion.y = JUMPHEIGHT
    #makes the player stop moving up when jump is released
    if Input.is_action_just_released("ui_up") && motion.y < 0:
        motion.y = 0

    motion = move_and_slide(motion, UP)

Basically just ignore new keypresses if the player is not on the floor
