  Is this basically saying you can't do aerobatics in
this airplane after it is about a couple of years old?

AD WATCH: If you've been flying your Zlin (Moravan
the way you
thought it was rated, now's a good time to
total the
number of aerobatic hours you've put it through.  It
the loads
weren't properly calculated at certification time and
more than 190
hours of aerobatic and utility use in early models and
hours of that
type of use in later models is considered safe.  An AD
been issued
on the Socata TB 21 to modify the exhaust system to
leaks into
the cabin and owners of Air Tractors must repeatedly 
inspect the upper
longeron and upper diagonal tube on the left side of
aft fuselage
structure for signs of cracks.

   NOTE: See AVweb's NewsWire at
for details.
