I'd be a bit concerned about the performance implications of this approach. If the intent is to run this program on the same machine as FlightGear, then there will need to be a fair amount of tuning to make sure that the real-time FlightGear performance isn't affected and that the AI program isn't starved at the same time. My impression is that the traffic manager is quite CPU intensive; perhaps that's skewed by initialization costs. It's still a good idea to have a separate program as an option, and many people have several computers laying around. But do think about the single machine case too, especially in the context of wanting to work well on three operating systems (Unix, Windows, OS X).
