Designed from the Hans Klemm powered glider design, the L.25, one prototype was built in 1928, plus several registered as Leicht-flugzeugbau L-25.

The 2 seat sport L 25 was produced from 1927 with many types of engine. The L 25a was built in 1927 with the BMW Xa, 68 hp radial engine. The AKL-25 made its public debut at the 1928 Nationals where, with its gliderlike characteristics, it won the dead-stick landing contests.

Boland Aeroplane Co was formed in 1928 as a component of Aeromarine Plane & Motor Co Inc. to begin aircraft production. They acquired manufacturing rights to Klemm L.25 and the name, Aeromarine-Klemm, came into use. The design became production Aeromarine-Klemm AKL-25A. About 60 of the AKL-25, AKL-25A aka L-25A were built, of which some were converted to AKL-26A. Production was superseded by the AKL-26.
