El terme As de l'aviació o en breu as fou utilitzat per primer cop per la premsa francesa durant la Primera Guerra Mundial, per a honrar Adolphe Pégoud com l'as, després d'haver abatut cinc aparells alemanys. Al principi de la Primera Guerra Mundial encara no existien els combats aeris i els aparells eren únicament de reconeixement. Tan bon punt els aparells van començar a ser capaços d'abatre o de forçar a aterrar altres aparells, sistemes d'acreditació de victòries van aparèixer.

Als primers passos de l'aviació militar, diferents serveis aeris van desenvolupar diferents mètodes d'acreditació de victòries aèries. Cap d'aquests sistemes era totalment fiable i eren constantment subjectes a variacions. De fet, el nombre de victòries per a ser considerat com un as oficialment variava depenent del servei militar.

Els alemanys no utilitzaven el terme as sinó que es referien als pilots alemanys amb deu victòries com a Überkanone, i assignaven cada victòria a un pilot en concret, i només després d'haver verificat visualment la destrucció total o parcial de l'aparell enemic. El sistema de l'Armee de l'Air francesa només comptava els aparells totalment destruïts, però acreditaven a tot aquell pilot o observador que hagués participat en la victòria, que en alguns casos podien ser diversos individuals. La majoria de les altres nacions (inclosos els Estats Units) van adoptar la nomenclatura francès. Els aparells britànics lluitaven normalment sobre territori alemany, i per tant no podien verificar visualment totes les victòries, com ho feien els alemanys. Al principi les batalles resultaven sovint en l'oponent forçat a aterrar o expulsat del territori i obligat a marxar cap al seu territori. Per això, els britànics acreditaven combats categoritzats de decisius pels mateixos comandants d'esquadró; podien incloure aparells alemanys expulsats del territori o aparells que havien estat vistos per última vegada for a de control sense verificar si realment havien acabat estavellant-se. Les acreditacions dels russos reflectien a vegades victòries on l'enemic no havia estat totalment destruït. El terme as mai va ser utilitzat oficialment pels britànics.

Tot i que l'estatus d'"as" era sovint associat als pilots de caça, tant els bombarders com els aparells de reconeixement, i observadors en aparells biplaça com per exemple el Bristol F.2b (Bristol Fighter) també obtenien victòries sobre l'enemic. En ambdós bàndols, si un aparell biplaça aconseguia una victòria, aquesta era acreditada a ambdós membres de l'equip, tant el pilot com l'observador amb metralladora. Com que alguns pilots formaven equips amb diversos observadors amb metralladora en aparells biplaça, es podia donar el cas que els observadors fossin asos mentre que els pilots no.
