There have been a few posts and discussion about SR20 off-airport landings that have happened. Here’s one about a Cessna.
Today, an SR20 (mine) was fortunate enough to be able to locate a downed Cessna Cardinal, and relay position info etc. to the pilot and a nearby airport.
The pilot of the Cessna radioed a MAYDAY call just as I was departing BLM (Allaire, NJ) today; I responded, and he told me that his engine was running very rough, but that he would try to reach BLM. A few seconds later, he reported that he had lost all power, and would be landing in a field.
I got approximate position info from him, and headed to where I thought he was. After a short while, I located him. This Cessna driver did a first-rate job - he chose an excellent field, and apparently greased it in. Other than the newly deceased engine, there was no damage at all to his airplane.
His engine, which had just recently had a jug replaced, was a mess. The new jug had split.
I spent 25 minutes circling over the field and relaying messages to and from the downed Cessna. I know that there is at least one Cessna driver who won’t soon forget the sight of a Cirrus SR20 circling overhead.
