Go-around and subsequent problems

Recommended Posts

Hi all,Yesterday I did an online flight (on the PMDG 737-700) into Boston. Most of the flight went well, until the final approach. I was too high (well, not me---the plane....lol) and asked for a go-around, which I was given. ATC told me to fly rwy heading and climb to 3000ft. I hit the TOGO button, but then seemed to lose control of the plane. It wouldnt turn as i wanted, and the altitude hold, lvl chg, and v/s inputs didnt seem to do anything. I wasnt usubg LNAV/VNAV at that point, only the MCP. I was climbing extremely rapidly, and only when I disenguaged the AP was I able to (temporarily) control it. So, any ideas what I did wrong? I thought I read somewhere that you need to turn the flight director on and off (or was that the auto-throttle??) after hitting the TO-GO, in order to reset everything. Any answers would be appreciated. I'm new at this, as you can probably tell.Ron

Hi Ron,There are a few details I'd would need to know to solve your problem as the 737 go-around 'system' behaves in different ways depending on a number of factors, so the easiest way for me to help you is to post a section of a real world 737 AOM concerning the go-around.http://forums.avsim.net/user_files/144205.zipIf you've got any more questions the just ask away :)Cheers,David
