Primary user: Royal Netherlands Air Force

Fokker D.XVII, was a Dutch biplane created by Fokker. On 18 January 1935, it broke a high-altitude record, flown by Luitenant René Wittert van Hoogland. Although many pilots noted it was a nice plane, it suffered several setbacks and numerous problems resulting in many accidents, most of them during take-off or landing when the plane flipped over.

In May 1939, the aircraft was considered obsolete and used as fight pilot training for the LVA Flying School.

The D.XVII saw very limited combat during the Battle of the Netherlands, and when the Dutch surrendered to the Germans, the remaining aircraft were burned.
