What’s the cost for Alternator #1 replacement on a Cirrus SR22?

Our service center recommended installing the Plane Power alternator because of increased reliability and the product carries a two year manufacture warranty.

We installed a new Plane-Power 28 volt gear driven alternator.

Alternator #1 is a direct cost of flying that wears like mags, tires and brakes. In a shared ownership, you should allocate a reasonable cost in the hourly rate for alternator replacement.
