|Role||Four-seat cabin monoplane|
|Manufacturer||Constructions Aéronautiques G. Renard|
The Renard R.17 was a Belgian four-seat cabin monoplane designed and built by Constructions Aéronautiques G. Renard. The high cantilever wing was an unusual feature when most contemporary aircraft still had braced wings. Designed as a high-speed transport for fresh flowers, no aircraft were ordered and the only R.17 was retained by the company until 1946.
