Help with a college project

Hi all,
I’m a student at FGCU down in SW Florida. For one of my classes, I have a project and part of my specific project involves mapping out flight paths over major interstates and roads. I have all the tail numbers of the aircraft I have to track and was hoping to use the API to do the heavy lifting instead of sifting through hundreds of flight paths, figuring out which road that is on an unmarked map, and highlighting it. My question is, is this going to be feasible with this API or would there be a better means to get this done? The list contains roughly 160 aircraft so if possible, I’d like to avoid resorting to doing it all by hand.

Thank you for your time
