Yesterday I was instructed to go around on short final.
There were so many aircraft icons on top of each other that I couldn’t see why, but something probably went wrong in terms of separation.
What if, you have to go around, with or without ATC, behind an aircraft that was cleared for the option and does a touch and go or is doing pattern work on its own?
You’d have to keep going in the same direction while climbing to pattern altitude at full power. But if the aircraft in front of you is also climbing to pattern altitude after a touch and go, what will happen to the separation?
Is there a procedure to follow?
Or is this something that is very unlikely to happen?
I hope someone can answer this hypothetical question.
