How did you make your line animation, mask and stroke? If that's it, just open up the mask and click "mask path".

Now go to your plane, twirl down to position and paste the mask properties into the position. Now adjust the keyframes to match your line animation. Press "Cntl+Alt+O" and change the orientation to "Orient to Path". You may need to adjust your starting rotation but the plane should follow the path after that.

Pretty much the same, yes. You would twirl open your shape layer > Path > and select "path" and copy it(cntl+c). Now open your airplane layer, and the transform properties and click-select position and paste(cntl+v) the path you just copied. Press "cntl+alt+o" to open the orientation dialogue and select orient along path. You will probably need to rotate your plane to get the correct starting position.

Lastly, when you copy the keyframes from the path, they probably won't the timing of your Trim effect on your shape layer. The pasted keyframes are roving keyframes, so you just need to the first one and move it to where your animation starts and then move the last one to where the animation ends. Because these are roving keyframes the ones in the middle will auto-adjust.

Here's a little project I made illustrating the technique, let me know if you have anymore questions. 5846_autoorientfolder.zip
