The Potez 29 was a biplane powered by a nose-mounted 335 kW (450 hp) Lorraine 12Eb broad-arrow piston engine, with a fixed tailskid landing gear. Based on the earlier Potez 25, with the same wings and engine, the Potez 29 had a new fuselage with an enclosed cockpit for two crew and a cabin for five passengers. The 29 proved to be a success; it entered service with civilian airlines, and 120 were delivered to the French Air Force, mainly as an air ambulance and light transport.
