Go-Around/Rejected Landings
Lesson Plan

Introduction:

  • Objective: To determine the applicant exhibits satisfactory knowledge, risk management, and skills associated with go-around/rejected landing with emphasis on factors that contribute to landing conditions that may require a go-around
  • References: AIM; FAA-H-8083-2, FAA-H-8083-3, FAA-H-8083-23, FAA-H-8083-25; POH/AFM

Attention:

  • Research a mishap case study:
  • Discuss how the initial conditions developed into an incident/accident/mishap
  • Relate similar personal experience of the same type of incident/accident/mishap

Motivator:

  • A slip is a cross-control procedure where you are using "wing-low, top-rudder" to track the aircraft straight for altitude loss (forward-slip) or crosswind compensation (side-slip)
    • In doing this, you will need to lower the nose as the increase in drag without an increase in thrust will cause a rapid loss of airspeed, risking a stall
    • Simply stated, the higher the angle of bank, the lower the nose must be

Go-Around/Rejected Landing Knowledge:

The applicant demonstrates understanding of:
  • PA.IV.N.K1:

    A stabilized approach, including energy management concepts
  • PA.IV.N.K2:

    Effects of atmospheric conditions, including wind and density altitude, on a go-around or rejected landing
  • PA.IV.N.K3:

    Wind correction techniques on takeoff/departure and approach/landing

Go-Around/Rejected Landing Risk Management:

The applicant is able to identify, assess, and mitigate risk associated with:
  • PA.IV.N.R1:

    Delayed recognition of the need for a go-around/rejected landing
  • PA.IV.N.R2:

    Delayed performance of a go-around at low altitude
  • PA.IV.N.R3:

    Power application
  • PA.IV.N.R4:

    Configuring the airplane
  • PA.IV.N.R5:

    Collision hazards
  • PA.IV.N.R6:

    Low altitude maneuvering, including stall, spin, or controlled flight into terrain (CFIT)
  • PA.IV.N.R7:

    Distractions, task prioritization, loss of situational awareness, or disorientation
  • PA.IV.N.R8:

    Runway incursion
  • PA.IV.N.R9:

    Managing a go-around/rejected landing after accepting a LAHSO clearance

Go-Around/Rejected Landing Skills:

The applicant exhibits the skill to:
  • PA.IV.N.S1:

    Complete the appropriate checklist(s)
  • PA.IV.N.S2:

    Make radio calls as appropriate
  • PA.IV.N.S3:

    Make a timely decision to discontinue the approach to landing
  • PA.IV.N.S4:

    Apply takeoff power immediately and transition to climb pitch attitude for Vx or Vy as appropriate +10/-5 knots
  • PA.IV.N.S5:

    Configure the airplane after a positive rate of climb has been verified or in accordance with airplane manufacturer’s instructions
  • PA.IV.N.S6:

    Maneuver to the side of the runway/landing area when necessary to clear and avoid conflicting traffic
  • PA.IV.N.S7:

    Maintain VY +10/-5 knots to a safe maneuvering altitude
  • PA.IV.N.S8:

    Maintain directional control and proper wind-drift correction throughout the climb
  • PA.IV.N.S9:

    Use runway incursion avoidance procedures, if applicable
