Development of the aircraft began Storm 320E Italian engineers and designers in the 1991 year, at the same time as a support base for the design was the model aircraft 300 the Storm, which appeared a few months earlier. In contrast to the basic model, which is based on the aircraft, and create the Italian aviarazrabotchikami was decided to create a lighter, but at the same time and a cheaper aircraft in terms of its cost, which could attract more interest from prospective owners.
Due to the fact that the aircraft is actually created by a different version of the aircraft, successfully-proven, aircraft were built and tested aircraft manufacturers only for two years, and in the year 1993, aircraft of this model was able to take to the air for the first time.
To minimize production costs and increase production capacity, the leadership of the Italian aircraft company «Storm Aircraft» it was decided to release Storm 320E aircraft models as kits for self-assembly of future owners - in this situation, the cost of one of the aircraft was only about 20 thousand dollars, and for the assembly of aircraft needed only to 250 from 400 hours of free time. Airplane Storm 320E got certain popularity among customers, however, the release of the aircraft was severely limited - production period lasted only a 1993 on 1998 years, and during that time it was created 100 kits for self-assembly, of which, according to 2014 year it was sold 94 units of the current model.

(The maximum rate). The maximum flight range of ultra-light aircraft is also quite acceptable for this class of aircraft, and is 1000 kilometers.
