  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
Z-242L) 
the way you
thought it was rated, now's a good time to
realistically 
total the
number of aerobatic hours you've put it through.  It
seems 
the loads
weren't properly calculated at certification time and
no 
more than 190
hours of aerobatic and utility use in early models and
450 
hours of that
type of use in later models is considered safe.  An AD
has 
been issued
on the Socata TB 21 to modify the exhaust system to
prevent 
leaks into
the cabin and owners of Air Tractors must repeatedly 
inspect the upper
longeron and upper diagonal tube on the left side of
the 
aft fuselage
structure for signs of cracks.
