Aircenter, Inc.'s new Extended Range Fuel Mod now enables you to safely fly for over SIX hours - NON STOP at 75% cruise power.
If you have a special mission for your Aero Commander or just want the peace of mind knowing you have more than enough fuel for those trips where unexpected head winds slow you down, our Long Ranger II fuel mod is the answer. This gives you an extra margin of safety when flying over water or mountains, in-between fuel stops or for longer trips with legal IFR reserves. If you frequently land short of your long distance flights, you will appreciate the added range that Aircenter, Inc.'s Long Ranger II extended fuel mod can provide.
Our Long Ranger II fuel tanks are made of proven vulcanized synthetic rubber construction; built this way to provide years of trouble free use. The eight bladders (four in each wing, just outboard of the factory-installed wing tanks) are totally contained within the wings and installed though small holes in each bay. The Long Ranger II fuel cells are factory new and carry a five year warranty. Aircenter, Inc.'s Flap Gap Seals can also be installed, giving your Aero Commander even more range due to the extra six knots of cruise speed it gains from aero dynamic clean up.
Just think about it: Chicago non stop to Miami , New York to Fort Lauderdale ; Miami to San Juan , Puerto Rico, without stopping at Grand Turk; Houston to Palm Springs . Take advantage of tail winds and set your mind at ease on those IFR flights when the requirements for an alternate make it difficult. The Long Ranger II fuel mod makes those alternates well within range.
Your Aero Commander actually becomes faster on long cross country flights, eliminating the need for additional fuel stops. On the average, it adds an hour to your flight when you have to descend from altitude and land for additional fuel. Take advantage of low fuel prices. With the Long Ranger II fuel mod you can tanker fuel from your home base.
