Background for this post:
I have noticed that many pilots perform go arounds wrong. In many situations this will cause lack of separation between aircrafts.
Typical scenario can be; told to go around, turning crosswind too early and coming too close to others in the pattern/on approach or cut in line.
Why do you have to go around?
- Lack of adequate separation.
- Unstable approach/final, too high, too low, wrong landing configuration etc.
Please maintain a responsible speed on final and look at your map. Keyword: Situational awareness.
Mark has made a tutorial on how to perform a go around properly and safely.
Fly runway heading, clean up and climb until you reach pattern altitude (1000 ft. AGL for GA/1500 ft. AGL for jets/airliners),then turn left/right.(L<—I--->R)
- Follow the sequence
- Maintain separation
- If you are handed over to approach, do as instructed.
Runway heading: Magnetic heading of the runway
Pattern altitude: Level above the field to fly when you are in the pattern
AGL(Above Ground Level): Height above ground level
