Data related to aviation is expensive. Locate a reliable and free database that updates with frequency is difficult.
When somebody is looking for information, Wikipedia articles use to appear at the top of the search results.
Wikipedia is a great and reliable source of information that the interested parts keep updated. If you run an airport or an airline you want it to be at the Wikipedia, with the information as accurate as possible.
All this made me start this series of projects related to aviation where I would put available the information from Wikipedia in a usable way.
Learned how to scrape a web site dealing with the different scenarios that Wikipedia can expose.
Downloaded and saved all the airlines, airports, and destinations available at the Wikipedia.
Created a CLI interface to download all the information and save it in JSON files, so it can be used by the next package aviation-json.
