To agree with Alan, but with some additional generalizations.

1. IFR commercial pilot: airspace is completely irrelevant as they fly the clearance from ATC, initially filed by another airline individual who is not a pilot. 2. IFR general aviation pilot: airspace is only of interest on the ground when designing a clearance request that will be typed into the web terminal. 3. VFR commercial pilot: Almost irrelevant as tends to operate in areas without airspace restrictions or with full ATC coordination on an ad-hoc basis. 4. VFR cross country pilot: Interested in airspace, but usually just wanting to know where it is, to fly far around it. 5. VFR visiting pilot: Intensely interested in airspace, wants the simulator to help him learn not to accidentally bump into it. 6. VFR local pilot: Probably has it memorized anyway, owns the chart mostly to be compliant with the rules. 7. Antique / simple homebuilt pilot: Doesn't have radios or the like anyway, simply needs a few circles marked 'mode C veil'. 8. Military pilot: Doesn't use civilian charts. Could be fun to have the MTR details transcribed for simulating those fighters. 9. Shuttle pilot: I could ask if needed, but I suspect they count as  since they're in class A airspace until the final brick-like landing. 10. Aerobatic pilot: The boxes. And something on the simulator to be sarcastic when you accidentally leave the box. 11. RC pilot: No idea. Curt? 12. ... who is missing from the list?
