The FAA do not inspect airplanes as much as they have a mechanic that inspects it at least once a year and has to sign for its airworthiness. The pilot vouches it is airworthy each time he flies it.

In commercial operations there are inspections but it is mostly a paperwork thing. There is also random ramp inspections. Basically though the individual pilot or organization are on their own when it comes to airworthiness in the US.
