I just saw this news article from FlightGlobal a few minutes ago, and I would like to get your response. (I guess this is a good forum as I assume you guys do most of your simming in large "Transport category aircraft".)

 

When was your last go-around?

What was the reason?

Do you usually fly the full IFR missed approach procedure to holding or just re-position visually or via vectors?

Did you screw up or bust a restriction on your last Go-around?

Also do you routinely use the some sort of "traffic zapper" if AI traffic gets in your way?

 

Read the article here, especially the last 2 paragraphshttps://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/go-around-study-reveals-failure-to-check-basic-criteria-388991/  :blink:

I went around because I was unstable into ksfo, did it at about 2000ft 3nm from the rwy. Had some very bad act and could never get on a good descent profile. That was in the sim. In real life went around at KFWS for a disabled aircraft on the runway he had a dual engine failure.

That is a badly chosen set of anwers... I have hardly done a single flight in last 1-7 days, while in my most productive times I might have done upwards of ten in a same timeframe. The last go-around I did might have been 10-15 flights ago? I have not been cleared to land in time due to traffic in front taking their time to vacate (online). Then there was this one flight about 6ish flights ago, which I normally would go around from (unstable approach), but I only had so much time available in the sim, so I landed. Turned out OK, considering the unstable approach and their visuals, which were a bit off (horizon a couple degrees under where it should be)

I had 3 GA on same flight a couple of days ago. Just rebuilded my fsx.CFG, and i forgot to disable turbulence and thermal effects on aircraft. I had a very hard time to stabilize NGX on LEPA 06L approach, and i figured out what happens after i landed. But i perfom GA every time when when plane is not stabilized at minimums. Sometimes, it happens that i don't have time for that, and i land to late or too fast. I like realism, but it happens

The last go around I was in was with one of my students the other day. He got too low and slow and made the decision to go around. I was so proud of him. Made my day.

I had to perform a go around in St. Petersburg the other day. I was too low on final and so low I couldn't intercept the G/S

I had to G/A during the Vatsim Tirana Summer Fly-in, I was too high and fast to intercept the LOC/GS rwy 18 properly.

Yesterday. On final RWY 20 EBBR. I wasn't really paying enough attention, so I wasn't stable by 500 AGL => Go-Around. I flew the full procedure, with a few minutes holding to give myself ample time to configure again for approach.

3 minutes ago on the approach to LEPA due to localiser deviation... Trying now for a 2nd time, wish me luck...  ^_^

LOL! This was my problem too, but i had very strong turbulence and some strange thermals too. I disabled them after that experience. 

 

fingers crossed!

I recommend AISmooth for better control of AI traffic.

 

My last go a round was KMDW.  On my flare, the NGX just kept floating.  I'll just blame my yoke for being too sensitive :)

Yesterday, due to the weird way that fsx does fog. Neared the runway and went from great visibility to none in about 1 second. Was flying the approach manually and got thrown off by the sudden fog. Went around and disabled the fog.

I got caught off by some pretty powerful gusts the other day on approach to LGAV. I didn't feel comfortable continuing the approach when I was a couple of hundred feets AGL, so I opted to go around instead of putting my virtual passengers at risk in my newly polished 737-800 NGX. ^_^

 

I've had a handful of go-arounds due to weather conditions/not fully stabilized at minimums since I started flying the NGX. A lot more due to a combination of the way FSX handles AI traffic and ATC...

I get DEMO of FSGRW, i have AS2012 but this seems to be realy good. I had to perform some GA becouse of this too. There is something realistic with their natural winds and local weather phaenomena. I like their flight planing page too. It's just simple, prety realistic and fast. Pretty realistic becouse i still evaluate this, i did only 3 flights. And i don't know how they managed this, i get turbulence pretty right, even with turbulence and thermals disabled in FSX :)

I had to do a go-around while flying on VATSIM into a busy KLAS. The approach vectors given by the controller didn't account for the fact that I was too high, too fast and too close to an aircraft in front of me on final, so I decided to overshoot. I was a little irritated because I saw it coming when he vectored me too close to try and squeeze me into the line, but as we all know, the 737 doesn't like to slow down in a steep descent.

Last one was into YVR a week ago. In the NGX and lost flight controls/hydraulics so to speak at about 700AGL, and couldnt figure out why. Turned out to be my X52 disconnected. Did a Go Around just in time. 

 

Good thing Yokes dont disconnect in real life. lol

Tuesday. ATC set me up pretty high on the approach, so didn't get down to the glideslope in time. I just got vectored back in.

My last go around was to YSSY in the NGX, Was a rough approach and then just seconds before i touched down i got hit by a big gust of wind, Flew the entire go around and then landed nicely the second time around

The only reason that i had a go around for the last 3 weeks was a call from EDDM tower to execute missed approach because there was still traffic on the runway (vatsim of course), cheers.

All my go-arounds were caused by AI traffic being too fast/slow or just rolling out aaaaaall the way to the last exit taking a minute or two.

Yeah I know, but some people do relate better with time than "X many flights ago", and the real-world study in that FlightGlobal article doesn't mention how many flights either.

 

I honestly did not know that a long-haul pilot can fly up to 10 years :wacko: without doing an actual go-around, until I read that article.

My last go around was at Dayton (KDAY) during their event last week. I was first brought in too close while being too high. I get the sense I was forgotten at 8,000 feet because the controller was getting bogged down by traffic. After he realized this, the controller expected me to be able to slow down and descend at the same time, which us 737-800 drivers know isn't all that possible. I ended up being at 190kts @ 1,500ft, far from being in configuration, and I elected to go missed. Second try around was perfect! The controller vectored me back around for a picture-perfect localizer intercept.

My last go-around was at LGKO about a month ago, I was flying an visual approach on VATSIM under quite windy conditions and had some windshear on short final.
