Have you ever heard of the term "stabilized approach"?

The idea behind it is that you establish the aircraft on the glide path, then do as little adjustments as necessary until you reach your DA/MDA.

In case of a missed approach procedure, all you need to do is raise the collective rather than pitching up..

Pitching up will result in more control I puts than just raising the collective at Vy......

But this is just my take on it...
