Go-around
2010-03-18

Go-around Power to full
Hold heading and altitude
Milk flaps or to 20 degrees according to IAS
At Vy flaps up and climb at Vy +10 or -5 knots.

The go-around can be executed at any point in the pattern. The go-around on final is to be treated as an emergency. 90% of go-around accidents occur on final. Some go-arounds are not possible due to limited aircraft performance and density altitude.
