If we consider the things we've accomplished so far in this go-around
as belonging to the maneuver's first phase, what's next?
When's the last time you did a go-around
just because something didn't look right?
The wreckage examination as well as drag estimates based on recovered EGPWS data indicate that lift dump remained extended during [the airplane's] go-around
attempt at Thomson-McDuffie Regional Airport.
First, the mindset that says a go-around
is normal, a landing isn't, is a good one to have.
A poorly managed go-around
can bring results as devastating as failing to try.
The airplane once again lifted back into the air, this time in a nose-high attitude, in what appeared to some witnesses to be the beginning of an attempted go-around
As we read the writer's comment, he suggested fully retracting approach flaps during the first few seconds of a go-around
Simply put, it is the vital PAR check that needs to be accomplished during these critical first six seconds: P=power (advance the throttle; mixture and prop should already be placed in the go-around
position during final approach); A=attitude (adjust the airplane's attitude to begin climb; use attitude indicator to ensure positive climb angle); R=retract (retract approach flaps to reduce drag during climb, then retract landing gear, if applicable).
Failing to see a reason for a go-around
in their experienced students' landings, they might not require demonstration of a go-around
during a flight review or other recurrent training.
Several witnesses said the pilot started a go-around
at approximately 50 to 150 feet agl, but almost immediately started a descent.
in each airplane I've flown since is always some variation on that same basic theme.
At approximately 1115 Mountain time, a Cirrus SR22 was substantially damaged when, during an attempted go-around
, it struck a snow berm and nosed over.
