Change The Way You Look
THUNDERSTORMS ARE DEADLY
Over the most current five-year reporting period, more than 230 fatalities have resulted from thunderstorm-related general aviation accidents. More than 230 people whose lives very likely could have been spared if the pilots had avoided the thunderstorms and their related hazards. More than 230 people who left the ground believing they had the knowledge and instrumentation necessary to keep them safe.
3M DETECTS THUNDERSTORMS
In 1981, 3M acquired Stormscope Weather Mapping Systems...the first airborne instruments developed specifically to detect and map thunderstorms (with their potentially dangerous turbulence and convective wind shear). While 3M continued to improve these valuable instruments, our engineers were challenged to develop something even more precise, more accurate, more clearly defined.
NEW STORMSCOPE SERIES II SYSTEMS
Today, thunderstorm detection and mapping takes a quantum leap forward with the new Stormscope Series II Weather Mapping Systedm from 3M. This is a totally new technology unlike anything else on the market. A technology so unique it requires new patents. So precise it virtually eliminates the guesswork in thunderstorm avoidance. It's going to change the way you look at thunderstorms.
NOTHING ELSE COMES CLOSE
There is simply no other airborne technology available today that can map electrical discharges and thunderstorm activity as precisely and accurately as the Stormscope Series II system. No other airborne thunderstorm detection instrument is as easy to operate and interpret. No other airborne instrument including weather radar, gives a more precise presentation of thunderstorms to help you circumnavigate the hazards you most want to avoid.
The Stormscope Series II system is extremely easy to operate and interpret. Simply stay 20 nm from the clusters of discharge points as indicated on the Series II display and you avoid the dangerous thunderstorms and their associated hazards. Use the lower ranges to get an even more precise definition of the areas to avoid. There's less guesswork, less room for mis-interpretation. You get just the information required for safer circumnavigation of thunderstorm hazards.
YOU'LL FLY SMARTER
