1957 - The first flights for missionaries are flown out of the city of Cuiabá, Mato Grosso.



1959 - A second Operations Base is opened in the extreme north of Brazil, in the city of Boa Vista.



1969 - Licenses were granted to install HF radios in Boa Vista and in surrounding villages, so the missionaries can have contact with the city and the airplane.




1976 - A third Operations Base is opened in the city of Manaus.



1995 - The transition begins for MAF to hand over local leadership of Asas to a Brazilian Board of Directors and leadership team. Asas is now an MAF Affiliate Program, with all local operations run by national leadership and MAF providing assistance to Asas when requested.



2016 - Asas enters into a formal partnership with Ethnos 360, for Asas to provide pilot and maintenance services for Ethnos 360 aircraft stationed in Brazil.



2017 - Asas enters into a formal partnership with JAARS, so that the two organizations can exchange personnel, equipment and expertise.
