Work on the design of Lombardi LM.5 aircraft began in the pre-war period, however, due largely increases the cost of the project, the plane is not widely used in the territory of any of the European countries or in other regions of the planet, in connection with which, in the 1948, the plane was taken out of production.

The development of the Lombardi LM.5 aircraft was associated with the need to provide aircraft for private owners, while the multipurpose aircraft could be used both for short-distance flights and for the transport of goods, which was mainly facilitated by a good carrying capacity and a spacious cabin. To date, only four aircraft of this model are known to exist, including two of them located in Italy, one in Spain and one in Germany.

Initially, the Lombardi LM.5 aircraft was designed to carry only two people - a pilot and one passenger, but later, with the release of the modified version of Lombardi LM.7, the aircraft could already accommodate three people, but the aircraft was deprived of the ability to transport cargo , Which, in fact, did not add to his popularity. If necessary, the aircraft could also be used for training piloting skills, facilitated by the joint control of the aircraft, however, due to the lack of demand for the aircraft, it was not used for this purpose.

Air Lombardi LM.5 vessel is equipped with a power-plant consisting of one aircraft engine piston-type Continental C90 capacity of 90 hp, allowing, in turn, carry out air travel for distances in 680 kilometers at cruising airspeed in 165 km \ h. The power plant has been very reliable, and usually did not require complex technical measures for its maintenance.

In 1947, Italian aircraft manufacturers presented a modified version of this aircraft - the Lombardi LM.7 version, which featured increased passenger capacity, three people could be accommodated on board, and a more powerful power plant, represented by Walter Minor or Praga piston engines, which are less reliable. but cheaper, and therefore the real price of the aircraft practically did not change. During the annual production period, only two aircraft of this version were built.
