2020 marks the 80-year anniversary for ASA and the Boeing 307 Stratoliner (cover photo); these aviation legends also share a birthplace in the Seattle, Washington region. The Stratoliner was the world's first commercial transport aircraft to offer a pressurized cabin allowing for high-altitude flight, the first four-engine airliner in scheduled domestic service, and the first airplane with hydraulically boosted control surfaces. In 1940, as the Stratoliner entered service with Pan American Airways setting new standards for speed and comfort, Aviation Supplies & Academics, Inc. (ASA) began setting the standard for accurate, reliable and trusted training materials and pilot supplies. In its 80-year journey, ASA has evolved to now provide more than 1,000 products serving students, pilots, flight instructors, aviation maintenance technicians, air traffic controllers, career aviators, remote pilots and drone operators.
