I've made an add-on for World Wind. It includes all the navaids, fixes and 
airports of the FlightGear database.

The names only appear when you zoom down below 1Mm, ILS localizers and markers 
only appear below 10km. I also made some symbols, but since it is not 
possible to define lod ranges for them, they would have cluttered the display 
and probably halted World Wind.


Unpack it in the World Wind directory. Use the layer manager in World Wind to 
select what to display.

There is no FG --> World Wind communication yet. But at least it can be used 
as a fancy map ;-)
