Work on the creation of small-aircraft Garrison Melmoth 2 conducted for over 20 years, moreover, the design for this period has undergone at least 5 different changes, in particular, initially the aircraft was supposed to make a single, however, because of the relatively high cost, it was decided to create a two-aircraft, with seating arrangement in the layout of each other. However, the final version of the plane yet become positioned as a four-seater sports aircraft, however, because of extended design work for the entire period was built only one plane, which is currently in use by the owner from California.

In a relatively small cabin aircraft Garrison Melmoth 2 can accommodate up to four people - including also a pilot. For cargo, the aircraft did not fit due to the nature of its design, but, in fact, for this purpose it was not intended since its design. Maximum range of flight Garrison Melmoth 2 980 limited kilometers, which in turn meets the requirements for aircraft of this type, though increasingly used the aircraft to perform aerobatic stunts and fly at high speeds, which is typical for the sport aviation.
As the power plant on the plane Garrison Melmoth 2 used a piston aircraft engine turbocharged Continental TSIO-360, capable of developing a maximum output of 200 hp, which in turn allows you to overclock the aircraft up to speed in 402 km \ h., At cruising speed flight in 370 km \ h. Turbocharged powerplant is fairly effective and high performance, however, requires some costs for its maintenance.
Aircraft Garrison Melmoth 2
The design feature of the aircraft Garrison Melmoth 2 are very good aerodynamic shape, greatly reducing air resistance during flight, as well as the T-shaped tail, stabilizing the aircraft and makes it more maneuverable, in turn, allowed us to use the aircraft as a sport aircraft.
In 2012, German aircraft manufacturers wished to redeem the license to manufacture the aircraft, however, according to preliminary data later abandoned because of the fairly high cost of implementation of the serial production of this aircraft.
