Today I flew for about 30minutes to my destination and has I approached I had to go around, and I realized I would have to go behind like 10-15 aircrafts again to land which would take me even longer, so I just quit. Do any of you like doing go around’s?
I like it because it makes IF more realistic… :P
I love to go around. But it doesn’t happen often. Like @Xpheros said it makes IF realistic. It would be more realistic if nimrods didn’t cause it.
You dont have to quit, just let your passengers know you gonna divert and save yourself those wasted flight experience =p
To answer the question, it depends on my mood. On days when i feel my phone lagging and to top that off lots of aircraft in the area, i just want to land before my phone crashes. Perhaps i could declare an emergency if there was an option xD I hate wasting exp when i put time into it.
If my phone is running smoothly, sure.
I thought the only people who didn’t like go arounds were the passengers 😂
No one likes to go around…in real life absolutely not because u spend more fuel ,delays Arrival,need to give explanation for GA etc etc😅…but you have to go around when it is needed regardless of the above consequences as safety is at higher priority…so even if we dont like to go around we might have to…thts reality☺
The worst go around is a missed approach…radio to tower sounding like a wounded puppy 🤕
I havent had much of missed approach but yes any kind of 2nd attempt is equal to a go around though both have different procedures to follow
Go-around’s the simulator more realistic, but yes sometimes they can be a nuisance :P
Go arounds test your piloting skills. I’ve had a few recently. The most recent was when I was about 100’ from touchdown. Retract gear, full power, retract flaps and manage a turn that doesn’t throw the passengers around. Love it. It’s a beautiful thing. And like others have said, adds realism.
They can be tedious. But how can you say no to having the ability to fly the 787 like a fighter for 10sec :)
I don’t mind go arounds but I understand your frustration. I’ve had instances where I need to get off IF for whatever reason but I hate just quitting. I at least try to land and taxi to parking, but every now and then I have to wait behind other aircraft, or I rush the approach, screw it all up and have to go around. All in all they’re just a normal part of aviation. Just think, Boeing has go around buttons on the thrust levers. It’s mandatory extra flight time!!
I love go around.
ATC can see what error he does!
Nope I don’t do go arounds they don’t exist when I fly you either move out of my way or I land on top of you :)
Even on the expert server?
They can be annoying but it gives you a better chance at a good landing instead of making yourself look bad.
Ye if you don’t move then yes go arounds are just hassle
its normal and i think its testing our pilot skills why not just go around and line up?
The only go around I don’t like are when I’m controlling tower and a pilot hops on my freq to say go around, but he just means he is going around my airport…
i was about 300 ft and ready to land when suddenly an aircraft made line up in the runway, so the atc tower request to me go around just second before to land, I pulled up the aircraft, full power and retracting the gear then I switched to approach and l landed about 10 minutes later. Felt very very realistic, I loved it. :)
