A team of Air Force engineers and equipment specialists have begun inspections of the Air Force Academy's aircraft fleet.

The inspections are complete internal and external nose-to-tail inspections that will be completed on all aircraft except the
DA-20s.

The DA-20's are only used for introductory flight training and are unaffected by the order grounding.

The entire fleet was grounded last Friday over safety concerns.

Normal flight operations will resume when Academy Commandant Brigadier General John Weida is certain all aircraft are safe for cadets.
