The phase inspections are separated into two categories. During a phase 1 inspection, the 52nd EMS Maintenance Flight members examine each A-10 after every 500 flying hours, and phase 2 inspections are performed every 1,000 flying hours. These inspections allow the Airmen to check for deficiencies and perform preventative maintenance to ensure the aircraft is safe and operational for flight.
