The Avia BH-17 was a biplane fighter aircraft built in Czechoslovakia in 1924. It was a development of the BH-6 and BH-8 and work on the latter aircraft was cut short in favour of this one. Operational trials in 1924 revealed performance good enough for the Czech Air Force to place an order for 24 examples. In actual service however the BH-17 proved unreliable and was soon withdrawn.
