Sometimes even though we are set up for a landing, something happens that would cause us to reject the landing. The rejected landing is called a go around. The most important thing here is to get the plane back into the air quickly and safely. You need full power and a clean plane to climb back to the traffic pattern and either go to an alternate landing airport or to try to re-land.
- Task: Perform a normal or crosswind landing.
- Condition: Given a functional aircraft.
- Standard: IAW the PTS.
- Exhibits knowledge of the elements related to a go-around/rejected landing.
- Makes a timely decision to discontinue the approach to landing.
- Applies takeoff power immediately and transitions to climb pitch attitude for VY, and maintains VY+10/-5 knots.
- Retracts the flaps as appropriate.
- Retracts the landing gear, if appropriate, after a positive rate of climb is established.
- Maneuvers to the side of the runway/landing area to clear and avoid conflicting traffic.
- Maintains takeoff power VY +10/-5 to a safe maneuvering altitude.
- Maintains directional control and proper wind-drift correction throughout the climb.
- Completes the appropriate checklist.
- ELO: What would cause a rejected landing?
- Anything that would make you feel that the landing under the current circumstances unsafe or make you uncomfortable.
- Student Check:
- Name three things that could cause an aborted landing?
- When is an aborted landing most dangerous?
- ELO: Identify common errors in approaches and landing.
- ELO: Perform a go around. ALWAYS FLY THE AIRPLANE FIRST!!!
- Full power.
- Pitch up slightly to descent.
- Partially retract flaps to reduce drag.
- Trim as required.
- Retract landing gear at PROC.
- Accelerate to Vy.
- Retract flaps.
- Contact the tower.
- Follow the tower’s instructions.
