Development of the aircraft Storm Sea Storm was initialized by the Italian aircraft company «Storm Aircraft Company» in 1991 year, at the same time as the base design engineers used a number of previous models, however, since it was primarily about the need for an aircraft capable of performing landing on the water surface, structurally aircraft had their own differences.

His first ascent into the air plane Storm Sea Storm models are made in 1994, after which, almost immediately was sent into production, where there was only up to 1998 years, which was mainly due to low demand among the customers. Over the entire period of production, and the plane was produced solely as a kit for self-assembly was created 25 sets, of which, according to 2014 years, was sold only 21 set.

Thanks to a good aerodynamic shape of the fuselage, the plane Storm Sea Storm has a high maneuverability, which in turn allows in some cases to use the aircraft as a sports aircraft, although it is not as such.

One of the most significant problems of Storm Sea Storm aircraft is a time-consuming work on the plane of the assembly kits kits - according to official data, aircraft design takes about 700 hours of free time, and requires appropriate tools and some experience. In this situation, potential customers could not even be interested in a low cost per copy, which is why in 1998, the official decision was taken to discontinue the model.

In the cockpit of the aircraft Storm Sea Storm can accommodate one pilot and one passenger, while, thanks to a sufficiently powerful propulsion system, as well as the free space inside the cabin, the aircraft can also be adapted and under carriage of a variety of different kinds of goods, the total weight of which, with Given its weight of two people in the airplane may be 299 kg.

The power plant of the aircraft Storm Sea Storm consists of a piston aircraft engine Lycoming O-235 115 power in hp, which is able to disperse the aircraft up to speed in 240 km \ h. (cruising speed). Maximum Storm Sea Storm aircraft flight range is 1674 kilometers, which is an acceptable indicator for aircraft of this type.
