    Good thing that chute wasn’t sold at Walmart. Would’ve popped.

  • Media idiots….an Cirrus plane has a parachute built into it to use in an emergency. He didn’t land the plane because once the parachute deployed you are at the mercy of the wind…

    A stalled engine is not a death sentence and does not necessarily require deployment of a parachute. If there is a safe place to glide to a safe landing, then that is the preferred option. A chute is nice to have when over more unforgiving terrain.
