A missed approach (otherwise known as a go-around) is a part of an instrument approach procedure. It is a maneuver conducted by crew when an instrument approach procedure cannot be completed to a landing. Main objectives of the study:
•To measure the performance of flight crew performing unexpected go-arounds and the number of errors made. (In a simulated environment)
Sub-objectives of the study:
•To determine whether a co-relation exists between the occurrence of error and the number of missed approaches carried out.
•To evaluate the severity of the errors.
A standardized grading system was used to measure the errors observed, the grading system was adapted from the grading system adopted by the airline industry currently. Constraints were imposed on the crew (weather) to observe the effects of external stress factors on crew performance. 15 sets of crew were tested from Feb 14 to July14 on 3 types of aircraft, B-777, B-787 and A-320 (full flight six axis simulators).
