Over 600 were produced and many sold in Britain where a licence built version, the British Klemm Swallow, first flew in November 1933.
It had a more powerful engine that the L.25 and was strengthened to meet British airworthiness requirements.
In 1935 British Klemm changed its name to British Aircraft and produced a revised version of the Swallow, the Swallow II.
A total of 107 were manufactured up until 1938. The majority were sold to private owners of rlying schools and many were taken over by the military during World War II.
Seventeen survived the war and a handful remain airworthy today.
