When is the right time to declare an emergency
DID YOU KNOW: Many pilots (and controllers) have misconceptions about who can declare an emergency and what happens when one is declared. FAR 91.3, which describes the pilot in command's authority, is relatively succinct: "In an emergency requiring immediate action, the pilot in command may deviate from any rule... to the extent required to meet the emergency." If a deviation does occur, the pilot may be asked to submit a written report to the FAA. The reg doesn't say the pilot has to declare an emergency in order to deviate; it just allows him or her to do what's necessary to meet the emergency. Similarly, FAR 91.75 allows deviation from an ATC clearance but it permits ATC to ask for a detailed report within 48 hours if priority is given. . . . . . Declaring an emergency has never exposed pilots to undue risk of enforcement action and now, if anything, doing so may credit for good judgment. And since a potential emergency will probably be investigated anyway, you might as well declare it and get all the help that's available. From AVweb 2/96
