Work on designing a light two-seat aircraft model Klemm L 25 British aircraft manufacturers have begun in the first half 20-ies of the last century. The new aircraft is supposed to be used for multi-purpose use, in particular, and the aircraft was positioned as a private air vehicle, and as a trainer aircraft, which mainly contributed to the presence of paired control.

To date, the aircraft model Klemm L 25 is considered one of the most successful British aircraft designed and created virtually at the dawn of the era of aviation, moreover, explained it quite attractive flight performance of the aircraft, and its high reliability, as well as a large enough quantity produced copies - for the entire release period, British aviarazrabotchikami was built more than 700 aircraft of this model, of which so far we only know of the existence of several dozen units.

A rather large wingspan of the Klemm L 25 aircraft, in relation to the length of the fuselage, reduced somewhat maneuverability of the aircraft, however, the fact that an increased wing area allowed to provide greater lifting force with a rather weak powerplant, attracted far more potential customers, and therefore it is logical to assume that the flaw has created for the project and a number of advantages.

The aircraft Klemm L 25 is quite cheap in terms of their operating aircraft, which contributes to the simplicity of design, and low-power enough to power plant, which can serve both the direct owner, which reduces the costs of various kinds.

aircraft first flight Klemm L 25 held in 1927 year, at the same time the plane has successfully coped with all the testing is required, and therefore, was soon started and mass production, which lasted almost until the beginning of 40-ies, which was due to mainly huge popularity of the airplane.

On board his plane Klemm L 25 can accommodate two people - a pilot and one passenger in the application of the model aircraft in the air as private funds, or else the instructor and the trainee, when the aircraft was involved in an educational and training tool. For several reasons, mainly due to the design features of the model, carrying on board the aircraft Klemm L 25 any goods is not possible.

The aircraft model Klemm L 25 equipped with a piston aircraft engine brand Hirth HM 60R, which is able to develop the capacity of 80 hp, allowing the aircraft is quite acceptable rate of displacement component 155 km \ h. (Maximum value), as well as giving the opportunity to perform non-stop flight at ranges up to 480 kilometers.
