Creedmoor, NC, August 14, 2013 – Twin Commander Aircraft has developed a new Custom Kit (CK) that improves the removal and reinstallation of the center fuel cell liner on affected models.
Repeated removal and reinstallation of the center fuel cell and liner system can lead to damage to the parts as well as oversized assembly holes. CK189 features reusable fasteners for reassembly of the liner encasing the center fuel cell on affected models. Installation of CK189 also will reduce the time required for subsequent inspections and disassembly of the fuel cell liner.
CK189 is applicable to the following models: 560A/E/F; 680; 680FL/FL(P)/F(P); 680T/V/W; 720; 681; 685; 690; and 690A/B. The 690A/B also are affected by Service Bulletins 208 and 241, which require removal of the center fuel cell and liner system. Installation of CK189 while the service bulletin work is being performed would be cost effective, according to Twin Commander.
