But I was wondering what the tag should be used for since it does not have any usage guidance. Right now there are two questions using it for flight experience / licences obtained abroad and how it relates to local regulations (in these cases FAA):
- Do I need to keep my foreign based PPL after passing an FAA instrument checkride?
- Do I have to prove my flight training time abroad when applying for a standalone FAA license?
There is one question using it for being a foreigner when getting a local licence:
- Flight Training in US as an Alien
(although this one is closed as a duplicate of this question, which isn't tagged foreign, but incorrectly uses international, which is about international flights according to its guidance)
There is one question using it for getting an FAA licence while being abroad:
There is one question using it for airlines operating an aircraft registered in a foreign country:
- Which are the requirements to fly a N-registered aircraft operated by a non-US airline?
(closed as duplicate of this question, which also does not tag foreign)
So what should this tag be used for? And do we even need it?
