Um, my plan was actually to have the sim spawn appropriate random aircraft
as the user gets near, and to have each airport populated with statics
which can randomly spawn into life.  Is there anything wrong with this?

Obviously the user should be able to switch this off, and it should be
turned off automatically when the sim connects to a server.

In the long run it should also be overridable if the user wants to drop in
say a file of actual airline routes and times.  (The GA stuff should still
be random though).
