Flexible Fuel Tanks

Flexible fuel tanks are reinforced rubberised bag type fuel tanks placed in a non fuel tight compartment.

The tank incorporates all the components as required for the rigid removable fuel tank such as a vent, drain and fuel quantity indicator etc.  The airframe compartment for the tank is used completely, with a small opening provided for the insertion of the tank.  When inserted into the compartment the tank is held in place by several ‘buttons’ or ‘snaps’ which attach the tank to the compartment.  These tanks are found on many medium sized aircraft.
