A Cirrus SR-22 crashed in rural Ivanhoe, MN Sunday night. It seems the chute deployed, but authorities are not sure whether is was deployed prior to the crash or deployed afterwards.

Wow the SR-22 has had a lot of crashes in its short career, I still think it is a great plane, but that has got to be murder on the insurance rates

I have never flown one, but I understand that they can be a little squirly and less spin tolerant than other comparable planes due to its short arm. If this is true, it would require attention to rudder use to stay in coordination. Unfortunately, many a GA pilot are rudder lazy, and as such are more suspectable to spins.

Quoting Skibum9 (Reply 2):

If the SR-22 uses the same system as the SR-20, it has a pretty strong aileron/rudder interconnect that makes it pretty difficult to fly uncoordinated. After flying one, I walked away with the impression that you'd really have to try to put one into a spin.
