FAA Cabin Safety Inspector?

Hello! Does anyone have any information on the FAA Cabin Safety Inspector job? What type of experience is needed for this position? Are they based in any one location? It seems the the pay is pretty good ($85 to $110k) but I'm wondering what the actual job entails. Is 100% of the job duties on board...
