My initial training, and the lion’s share of instruction given, was in and around an Alert Area NW of Opa Locka, FL. As such, it seemed that when flying, good landing choices abound - and that is still no doubt true for large portions of the country. But here’s my view when headed north from my current base in Copperhill, TN: The arrow is where I’d head if the engine quit. With a 40kt stall speed, in my Sky Arrow I just might have the skill to be able to make it work and walk away uninjured. I breathe a lot easier in another few miles when the “plains” of Tellico Plains come within gliding distance. In a Mooney or Cirrus with an engine out where the photo was taken? It’s frankly hard for me to imagine having a chute in that instance and not using it. In that circumstance, data shows a success rate in the very high 90% range. The chute played no role in my choosing the Cirrus I flew for about 4 years. But now I really miss having that option.
