Thank you for the feedback. I eventually downloaded the aircraftDatabase.csv, cleaned it and kept only the data I needed to make it a smallish 5KB file. I use this as a mapping between ICAO ids and aircraft types. The question now is, how often is this data changing, knowing that I do not need an absolutely perfect solution and can live with a slightly out of date database.
