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.

Development of the aircraft Lombardi LM.5 was associated with the need to provide aircraft to private owners, while the multi-purpose aircraft could be used for air travel over short distances, and for the transport of goods, which mainly contributed to a good payload and a spacious cabin. Today it is known about the existence of only four aircraft of this model, including two of them are 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.

For the annual production period, only two aircraft of this version were built.
