IV. Takeoffs, Landings and Go-Arounds
N. Go-Around/Rejected Landing
References FAA-H-8083-3; POH/AFM; AIM
Objective To determine that the applicant exhibits satisfactory knowledge, risk management, and skills associated with a go-around/rejected landing with emphasis on factors that contribute to landing conditions that require a go-around.
The applicant demonstrates understanding of
K1 A stabilized approach to include energy management concepts  
K2 Effects of atmospheric conditions, including wind and density altitude on a go-around or rejected landing  
K3 Wind correction techniques on takeoff/departure and approach/landing  
The Applicant demonstrates the ability to identify, assess and mitigate risks encompassing:
R1 Delayed recognition of the need for a go-around / rejected landing  
R2 Delayed performance of a go-around at low altitude  
R3 Improper application of power  
R4 Improper airplane configuration  
R5 Collision hazards to include aircraft, terrain, obstacles, wires, vehicle, vessels, persons, and wildlife  
R6 Low altitude maneuvering including stall, spin or CFIT  
R7 Distractions, loss of situational awareness, or improper task management  
The applicant demonstrates the ability to:
S1 Complete the appropriate checklist  
S2 Make radio calls as appropriate  
S3 Make a timely decision to discontinue the approach to landing  
S4 Apply takeoff power immediately and transition to climb pitch attitude for Vx or Vy as appropriate +10/-5 knots  
S5 Configure the airplane after a positive rate of climb has been verified or in accordance with the airplane manufacturer's instructions.  
S6 Maneuver to the side of the runway / landing area when necessary to clear and avoid conflicting traffic  
S7 Maintain Vy +10/-5 knots to a safe maneuvering altitude  
S8 Maintain directional control and proper wind-drift correction throughout the climb.
