Can someone tell me the scheduled inspection and replacement of dirty socks? Does it only happen at phase inspections? Seems this item frequently causes acrid odors in the cockpit and dirty socks also contribute to excessive canopy fogging during defog operation. Thanks. :D

You should also change it after you use a -60 on the jet. That might be where you are getting the odor from.
