And I've still got the idea somewhere in my notebooks. I haven't forgotten 
about that :-)

I do think that OSM-derived aerial navigational charts are worth it, but we 
need to get in touch with the people who would actually use it. How do we 
reach out to GPS-hungry airplane pilots?

Approach charts are tricky, because they depend on each airport's 
configuration, which depends on the wind direction. Would make a fun case for 
dual caching, though :-)

Ooohh, complete with the "we claim this slice off Antarctica". You know that's 
ripe ground for edit wars, right? :-P
