Missed Approach/Go Around (ICAO Definition)

Missed Approach/Go Around- From the first application of power after the crew elects to execute a missed approach or go around until the aircraft re enters the sequence for a VFR pattern (go around) or until the aircraft reaches the IAF for another approach (IFR). Missed approach/Go around is a sub phase of the approach phase of flight.

    In my opinion, the Go Around in the initial action (day or night, VMC or IMC, Visual or Instrument approach) performed by the pilot in command with the aircraft to stop the approach and landing by applying engine thrust, change flaps configuration and retracts the landing gear with positive climb then follow the Missed Approach published specifically for that airport.

  2. Luis Clarkson says:

    DC-10 Missed approach or rejected landing:
    If the decision is made to go missed approach or reject the landing,
    the PF will announce: ……………………“GO-AROUND THRUST, FLAPS 15”.
    (22 if making a 50 flap approach)

    When a climb is evidenced (altimeter and VSI):
    PM challenges: ……………………………………………………. “POSITIVE RATE”.
    PF replies: …………………………………………… “POSITIVE RATE, GEAR UP”.
    The PF then commands: ……………………. “SET ME UP FOR THE MISSED”.
    When duties permit, the PM should inform ATC. If in VMC, request tower
    instructions. Otherwise, fly the published missed approach procedure.
