I believe the US military is not officially subject to the FARs, but what about foreign military aviation? What about aviation activities of the various National Guard outfits?

Example...the Belgium air force operating a squadron of C-130's during a training exercise held in the USA.

  • $\begingroup$ I belive all aircraft operating in civilian airspace (military included) must at least have proper equipment aboard and follow civilian regulations on airspace etc. Even US military planes cary civilian transponders and radios for this reason. They can however operate without those things with prior approval. $\endgroup$ – Dave Mar 23 '18 at 21:03
  • $\begingroup$ The overall issue we are faced with is whether or not foreign military aviation activity in the USA is considered "General Aviation" or "Military" by the FAA. Figured stipulations on whether or not they must comply with the FARs would be definitive. Same issue with Air National Guard aviation activity. $\endgroup$ – Junior Hinkle Mar 26 '18 at 16:25
