|Role||Racing flying boat|
The M.17 was the first purpose-built racing seaplane that Macchi company designer Alessandro Tonini designed. It was a single-seat flying boat powered by a 186-kilowatt (250-horsepower) Isotta Fraschini V.6 engine mounted on the upper wing on N struts and driving a two-bladed propeller in a pusher configuration.
Macchi built two M.17 aircraft, one of which (I-BAHG) took third place in the 1922 Schneider Trophy race with Arturo Zanetti at the controls. It posted an average speed of 225 kilometers per hour (140 miles per hour). The other M.17, I-BAFV flown by Piero Corgnolino, placed fourth.
