Towards the end of the 2000’s, the BEA observed that a number of public
air transport accidents or serious incidents were caused by a problem
relating to “aeroplane state awareness during go-around” (ASAGA). Other
events revealed inadequate management by the flight crew of the
relationship between pitch attitude and thrust, with go-around mode not
engaged, but with the aeroplane close to the ground and with the crew
attempting to climb.
