Retraction of flaps from the TO to the UP position is n
ot recommended below 110 KIAS to preclude the aircraft settling
back to the runway. However, there is no minimum to raise the
flaps from the LDG to the TO position.
Reduce power, as appropriate. Accelerate to and climb at 120 KIAS. Adjust your flight
path, moving to either side of the runway, as necessary, to avoid conflicting traffic and to keep
aircraft on the runway in sight.
Once on the upwind leg, begin visually acquiring interval traffic. If remaining in the
pattern, when "#1, with interval," make crosswind radio call and turn crosswind.
Figure 6-11 Potential Conflict with ELP Traffic
A common and potentially lethal waveoff situation you should be
aware of and understand occurs in any landing pattern where
practice Emergency Landing Patterns (ELP) are flown on the
opposite side of touch & go traffic (such as at some OLFs). The
potential conflict exists when one aircraft is inside the 180°
position on one side of the pattern and another aircraft (normally
executing a practice PEL is inside the low key position on the other
side of the pattern (Figure 6-12). Both aircraft are converging to
the same runway. PEL traffic always has priority over traffic
already established in the pattern. Therefore, be vigilant to clear
visually and over the radios during your touch & go practice. If
there is any question as to a possible conflict with traffic inside low
key (on the opposite side), waveoff your approach. If you have any
questions about this potential conflict situation, ask your IP.
