I'm not trying to suck eggs but thought it is best to give everyone a fair starting point just incase there was any confusion:)

There are 3 ways make your approach to the runway. Which is always nice to share with the controller to aid a bit of planning.

Land (L)
You'll never guess what......you land off the approach and stay on the runway :)


Touch and Go (TG)
You physically touch down on the runway...reconfigure the aircraft quickly for take off then get back in the air...either to join the circuit for another approach or to depart for something else.


Low Approach (LA)
For this you make your approach to the runway but before touch down you re-apply the power to pull back up before you actually come in contact with the ground. There is no minimum height to descend to unless the controller specifically sets one.


Any questions about any of them then feel free to ask away. TG&LA are used to allow aircraft to practice approaches i.e. in a visual circuit without actually having to land.

8 days ago I went physically to Aviano Air Base and probably they were doing some approach practice because they done a lot of LAs with F-16s and also training flights. It is great to see in real world! B)
