As it currently stands the tag has no description and could be interpreted many ways. There are currently 5 questions tagged with it:

  1. Coordinate systems, not sure how it's related.
  2. Navigation equipment
  3. Ground marshals
  4. DO guideline examples
  5. Checklist best practices

Seems like it's being used as a synonym for both "navigation" and "advice." Should we just get rid of it? Are there better tags we could use?

Edit: Per the feedback I removed the tag from these questions.

I would get rid of it; the word "guidance" by itself is far too broad/vague. There are so few questions that I don't think that's a big deal to do that.

  • $\begingroup$ I agree. Can you think of good replacements? $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ @fooot I don't think we need any. All the questions have other, more useful (IMO) tags, so I would just remove guidance without replacing it. $\endgroup$

It does seem an unusual tag. The only thing I can think of in aviation that "guidance" would relate to would be weapons systems
