In partnership with renowned developer, Airplane Heaven, the Microsoft Flight Simulator team today introduced the latest in our Local Legend series: The Boeing Stratoliner 307. Boeing astonished the world in the late 1930s with the unveiling of the Stratoliner 307, a glimmering and inspiring monument to aviation technology. Born out of the Golden Age of Flight, years in the making, and the focus of intense efforts by Boeing designers and engineers, the Model 307 stood in a league of its own as an airliner. The four-engine, long-range aircraft was the world’s debut high-altitude airliner, the first to feature a pressurized cabin, which allowed it to operate up to 20,000 feet above sea level. The aircraft took its maiden flight on December 31, 1938, and was introduced into regular service on July 4, 1940. Boeing manufactured ten Stratoliners.

Built primarily with aluminum alloy, the 307 utilized stressed-skin engineering, where the metal exterior works in concert with the aircraft’s frame for strength, flexibility, and to maintain pressurization at altitude. The 307 could carry up to 33 passengers and five crew, including two pilots and a new type of aircraft personnel at the time, a flight engineer. The flight engineer was responsible for technical aspects of the aircraft’s operation, including cabin pressurization, power settings, and electrical components.

The Boeing 307 Stratoliner measures 38 feet, 7 inches in length, stands 20 feet, 9 inches tall, and has a wingspan of 107 feet, 3 inches. It is powered by four Wright GR-1820-G102A Cyclone radial engines that produce up to 1,100 horsepower each and turn 3-blade constant speed propellers. The 307 has a range of 1,300 miles, a service ceiling of 23,800 feet above sea level, a cruise speed of 222 miles per hour, and a top speed of 250 mph.
