Back when I was working as an A&P turning wrenches, we had a Cirrus pilot declare an emergency at our airport. He said he engine troubles. We brought him into our hangar, and he began to tell us about what he was experiencing.
Afterwards I told him he could have spared himself the hassle of declaring an emergency, because there is no such thing as an emergency in a Cirrus. The plane is equipped with an emergency parachute right?
