“Go around”

An instruction for a pilot to abandon the approach for landing and to climb away for a visual circuit pattern, or carry out a missed approach procedure, as appropriate. Additional instructions may follow. Unless other-wise advised by air traffic control (ATC), a VFR (visual flight rules) aircraft, or an aircraft conducting a visual approach, should overfly the runway while climbing to the traffic-pattern altitude and enter the traffic pattern via the crosswind leg. A pilot on an IFR (instrument flight rules) flight plan making an instrument approach should execute the published missed approach procedure or proceed as instructed by ATC (e.g., “Go around” [additional instructions if required]). Also called “Go overshoot.” See also aborted landing.
