I vaguely recall the term Overshooting being used to Go Around. When was the term Go Around cast in stone?

Not that I'm experienced in the US, but when I did my ATP, the exams were a walk in the park. The RT during the flight test was another thing altogether. I really struggled at first.

The thing is, I'd been speaking Tex-Mex for years.

Oh, edit to ask: What was that bloke's name in Shell Mex house who did the RT exam and the IR pre-test in the Link trainer? He used to launch into a falsetto voice at one stage, and make keeping a straight face a matter of command willpower. Something beginning with S ?
