In some circles they call it a "rejected landing
." I don't care if you call it a baloney sandwich, it's a good tool to have in your pack.
In a statement Captain Rich LaVoy, the APA President, has said that 'We are concerned that the FAA has not sufficiently accounted for Rejected Landing Procedures as part of LAHSO.
The FAA had been committed to thoroughly examining Rejected Landing Procedures, however responsibility for the analysis was given to the Air Transport Association (ATA), an air carrier lobby group, who conducted computer simulations of various scenarios.
One of the worst threats to an aircraft here is the predictable stall and stall/spin, regardless of whether the climb is due to a normal takeoff or a rejected landing.
Sometimes the pilot attempts to land and decides to go around--LOC during rejected landings can come in the form of too little speed to overcome a crosswind or too much angle of attack and a stall at its worse--low down and out of altitude, airspeed and ideas.
Minimum visibility, clear of clouds--that's how to practice the aftermath of a rejected landing.
Watching one recent Sunday as a half-dozen practiced different touch-and-go techniques, something struck: how infrequently pilots practice rejected landings. These differ from a touch-and-go because you fly it without rubber touching runway.
But be prepared--spring-loaded, some advise--to execute a go-around balked landing or rejected landing
, whatever the term du jour is.
(The FAA Practical Test Standards call for climbing out of a rejected landing at [V.sup.Y] airspeed.
I almost never see this side-step technique on the rare day I watch an airplane go around, although the FAA Practical Test Standards from sport and recreational pilot through commercial pilot (but curiously, not for the ATP) all require the pilot to "maneuver to the side of the runway/landing area to clear and avoid conflicting traffic" in the go-around/ rejected landing. Maybe we should re-emphasize the wisdom of the go-around sidestep, which does seem to offer some key benefits at a time when you're liable to need them.
One takeaway is that rejected landings
are flown quite similarly and begin with the aircraft trimmed for its landing configuration.
I found "Going Around" (January 2016) to be an excellent review of rejected landings
. However, I take issue with the suggestion that it is generally a good idea to retract the landing gear before retracting the flaps to a mid/approach setting.
