Bladder cost
« on: November 14, 2015, 01:51:29 pm »
How much are the bladders for the Commanders, roughly? I just want to educate myself as too how much money it would be to replace for new.

I had one that needed replacing in my plane.  It was the right outboard one, between engine and fuselage.

The part was $3655 with 3 hours of labor.

Thanks.

How many do you have in total, Steve?

Adam sorry for late reply.

Since I have the long range fuel I have 12 fuel cells, I think!  I have always thought that outboard of the engine nacelle it was wet wing and between the engines was bladders.  After reviewing my manual it looks like there is one bladder outside of the engine nacelle on each side.

Regular fuel would then have 10 cells.
