Do CR22's come equipped with parachutes?

Yup

I believe an addon in Xplane even models the system

A Cirrus SR22GT with a working CAP system was released by Eaglesoft nearly a decade ago for FS2004 and still works in FSX and P3Dv2, IIRC.

I spent many many hours working on that release. :loading:

I just read an article about an in-air collision that happened in Denver this morning. It stated that the CR22 and a Fairchield Metroliner collided on approach. The Metroliner landed safely with major tail damage and the articel says the pilot of the CR22 deployed a parachute that brought the CR22 to the ground with no injuries to the pilot and passenger. I never heard of such a system.

Here is the article: 2 small airplanes collide midair above Denver, no one injured, authorities say | Fox News

It’s an SR22 not a CR22.

If I was ATC, I would’ve questioned as to who ‘dropped the parachute’. 
Did somebody throw a parachute out the window?
Did he see somebody carrying a special one over the tarmac and they dropped it?
Did an airplane have a bomb bay and he noticed they had opened the doors so he reported they had ‘dropped’ a chute for somebody?
Oh! Do you mean they DEPLOYED their emergency parachute?

English may well not be the young student pilot's native language. If so, perhaps one day he'll learn proper English... :wink:
