German aircraft manufacturers of the company «Flugzeugbau Messerschmitt» started designing aircraft model Messerschmitt M 17 20-in the early years of the last century. As a fundamental principle of the engineers used the aircraft model Messerschmitt S 16B, which is primarily a very well-proven, and mainly due to this fact, the aircraft design time could significantly reduce, and the project turned out to be cheaper than in the case, if the development of the aircraft It was carried out from the beginning.

Plane Messerschmitt M 17 is a multipurpose aircraft, which has a wide scope of its application, in particular, that the aircraft was maintained and as a means to carry out flight on local airlines, and as a means for transporting mail, and educational and training purposes, and even as a sport aircraft.

It should be noted that the existence of opportunities for use of this aircraft, the project turned out to be for the aircraft manufacturers of the company «Flugzeugbau Messerschmitt», quite a disaster - for the entire period of production was built just 7 copies of the aircraft, of which up to now remained only a single plane.

His first flight of the aircraft Messerschmitt M 17 1924 made in the year, and, conducted tests have been very successful, so that the project was aimed at the production of which was in the period from 1924 1926 on year. What exactly was due to the low popularity of this aircraft model to date remains unknown, however, in terms of flight characteristics and its value, this aircraft was quite acceptable.

On board his plane Messerschmitt M 17 can carry out the transportation of two people - a pilot and one passenger, or, if the aircraft used in teaching and training purposes - an instructor and passenger. The payload, to take on board the aircraft, is very limited, and is only 206 kilos (without own weight the pilot), it is likely, and is one of the reasons why the aircraft could not be used for cargo transportation.
