Yes I use it and it works well in harmony with the Golden age, and Hawaii AI traffic as well. One word of caution ... is that while it won't use aircraft above a certain weight or Float planes ... IT will use automobiles. There is something disconcerting about waiting to take-off - holding for a 37 ford to land. If you install it, go to the aircraft listings ... find the things (like autos) and to the right there is an entry location titled "Probability % .... highlight the Auto, for example and enter in the probability % box "0" and a question mark will appear next to the auto ... you won't see any airborne autos after that.
It is an excellent and nifty program indeed ! But be careful .. Your pay or freeware models are generally heavier on frame rate than the default aircraft and using GA-Traffic with all your stuff may slow down your simulation specially around airport.

Thanks, now I can take the time to download it. I have dial up and that file is almost 8 megs which takes me about an hour to get. So, I will get that tonight and give it a try. I suppose I should change the probability on the "SKIER" from the Ryan STA package of Bill Lyons... That would be ONE LARGE ski jump.

without doubt ... I remember after I first installed it .... getting ready to take off ... had not really paid much attention to what will fly and not, and waiting and waiting for an RV on a long lazy approach to land. That got me to look more closely at the instructions and the AIrcraft lists.
