Klemm. Легкие самолеты
В 1933 году появились четырехместный Kl 31 и трехместный Kl 32, на обоих стояли моторы Sh 14.
До Kl 35D спроектировали и запустили в серию легкий моноплан Kl 36 с четырехместной кабиной. Самолет разрабатывался специально к конкурсу "Challenge deTourisme Internationale" 1934 года. На Kl 36A стоял Hirth HM 508F мощностью 220 л. с, Kl 36B отличался мотором Bramo Sh 14А в 150 л. с.

NEW BRITISH KLEMMS
THE latest catalogue of the British Klemm Aeroplane Co., Ltd., of Hanworth Aerodrome, Feltham, Middlesex, has just come to hand.
As we have already had the pleasure of announcing, the British Klemm Co. has been formed with Lord Willoughby de Broke as Chairman and Maj. E. F. Stephen as Managing Director. Mr. G. H. Handasyde is work's manager and Mr. H. B. Boultbee chief designer. The first fruits of their labours are described in this publication.
Two machines will shortly be ready, each of which embodies the characteristics of the Klemm and retains those flying features which have made them so popular ever since the German-built Klemm was introduced to this country about five years ago.
The smaller of the two is called the "Swallow," and is a British version of the standard two-seater Klemm, being an open low cantilever wing job. Powered with either the 70/75 "British Salmson" or the 80/85 "Pobjoy" engine, it will have a top speed of 100/105 m.p.h. and a landing speed of 37 m.p.h. The gliding angle is estimated to be 1 in 12. The ceiling is 16,000 ft. for the "Salmson" engined machine, with another 1,000 ft. for the "Pobjoy" engined model. The range will be about 400 miles.
The larger machine is an entirely new type. It has a cabin, seating three persons, and a retractable undercarriage. In general lay-out it follows Klemm practice, and the wheels close up into the cantilever low wing, leaving the underside of the fuselage completely drag-free. The construction is of wood throughout, and all surfaces except the elevators and rudder are plywood covered, these latter having fabric doped over them. The pilot sits in front with the two passengers side by side behind him. Large doors give easy access to the cabin as they open right down to the level of the wings. The controls are operated by the Simmonds-Corsey system, which was described in FLIGHT for February 23, 1933.
The wings are arranged so that folding them is an easy one-man job. Wheel brakes operating independently, one on each wheel are fitted.
The Klemm K.L.32 Three-seat Light Cabin Monoplane (130/150 h.p. Siemens Sh.14a engine).
SOME COMPETITORS: A Klemm Kl.32, piloted by Ministerialrat Christiansen, formerly skipper of the Do.X.
FLAPPED: Mr. A. S. Gibbons, who has for some considerable time been a staunch adherent to the "Klemm," has now forsaken his "Pobjoy"engined machine for this new model with a "Gipsy III," which he has purchased from Herr Fretz, of "Swissair." As will be seen in our photograph, it has large flaps on the trailing edge of the wing which, in effect, materially increase the camber, so that slow landings and quick take-offs can be made. He tells us that he can cruise at about 125 m.p.h. and that his landing speed is very slow. Herr Fretz had this machine built for last year's Rund Flug.
SECOND AND THIRD PLACE: The Argus engine was fitted in Morzik's Heinkel and Poss's "Klemm." It is here seen in the latter.
THE NEW HIRTH ENGINE: Herr Wolf Hirth at work on his brother's new 8-cylinder inverted vee engine, which is of 150 h.p.
ACCESSIBILITY: The Klemm Kl 32 ("Gipsy III") entered and flown by Mr. John Carberry.
SECOND AND THIRD: Morzik (left) and Poss gained the same number of points, the former flying a Heinkel (Argus) and the latter a "Klemm" Kl.32 (Argus). Morzik has twice won the International Touring Competition.
PAUSE FOR REPAIRS: A reader's snapshot of Mrs. Bonney at Alor Star, Malaya, during her recent Brisbane-Cape flight. She was awaiting the repair of a burst tyre on her elderly Klemm monoplane.
FIFTH: The De Havilland "Gipsy III" engine fitted in the "Klemm" flown by the Swiss pilot, Fretz.
AT THE DEAUVILLE MEETING: 4. Mr. Carberry's new "Klemm" (Gipsy III).
THE GERMAN REPRESENTATIVE: Herr Schwabe filling up the tanks of his Klemm.
A BRITISH-GERMAN-SWISS ALLIANCE: The Kl.32 ("Gipsy III") flown by Fretz.
SWITZERLAND, TOO: A Klemm (Gipsy III) piloted by Fretz gets good marks in the take-off, without turning helicopter.
OVER THE TAPE: Wolfgang Stein, on a Klemm.
A NEW TYPE AT THE D.E.L.A.: The Klemm Limousine four-seater is powered by an Argus engine.
UN COIN ANGLAIS: In the foreground the de Havilland Aircraft Co. are together with their agent showing three types of aeroplane. On the left is the Miles "Hawk," and on the right can be seen Herr Schwabe's "Klemm" in which he has recently returned from a flight to Capetown.
