I spoke to Robin Peel about this a couple of weeks ago.
The country codes for airports are already Robin's database - in fact he uses
them as part of the primary key.
However he won't add it to the airport file because X-plane doesn't use them
and Austin Meyer doesn't want anything in the apt.dat that is not X-Plane
I feel that they should be added because they will prove to be very valuable
for filtering but I haven't got enough weight to get them added.
