Actually that's not even slightly true. I've owned an SR20 and SR22, and a 1982 201J. They don't "emphasize" the chute, they talk about it as a safety item. Just like Mooney "emphasized" the roll cage.
It's also not true that it's about turn on AP, blah blah blah. That's typical ignorant talk. I loved my Mooney, but the Cirrus is a different traveling machine and once you fly one, at night over the mountains, with a CHUTE you'll understand. I had to sell my 22 to my partner last year and looking for another AC, and a Mooney is in the picture, but so funny the Cirrus ignorance whe
