Missed approach is an instrument flight rules procedure which is a standard (but optional) component segment of an instrument approach. Generally, if the pilot flying or the pilot in command determines by the time the aircraft is at the decision height (for a precision approach) or missed approach point (for a non-precision approach), that the runway or its environment is not in sight, or that a safe landing cannot be accomplished for any reason, the landing approach must be discontinued and the missed approach procedure must be initiated immediately. It is also common for pilots to deliberately execute a missed approach as part of initial or recurrent instrument training. In such cases a pilot may execute three or four instrument approaches in a row with a missed approach between each one.
