The Macchi M.17 was an Italian racing flying boat built by Macchi for the 1922 Schneider Trophy race.

Design and development

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[1] and driving a two-bladed propeller in a pusher configuration.

Operational history

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).[2] The other M.17, I-BAFV flown by Piero Corgnolino, placed fourth.
