Well, depending on what type of dogbone you have, cycles or GAG's (ground-air-grounds) are important. Pre mod dog bones, or bidirectional crossbeams require an AD to be performed every 150 cycles or 30 hours. They also need to be dye pen'd upon removal. I think they also have a 2000 hr. overhaul limit. I've never heard of the cabin structure GAG limit before.

i knew about the dog bone cycles as we have a premod one in the fleet right now (what a pain) but it was the cabin limit that the pilot came up with out in camp. i couldn't find anything on it in the manuals so i thought that i would ask you guys/gals. though it is sounding as though the pilot was miss informed or maybe it was a company requirement who knows.
