The first works related to the design of the aircraft model Emigh A-2 Trojan began the American aircraft manufacturers in the first half 40-ies, at the same time an aircraft of this model was to wear multi-purpose, in particular, it was assumed that he will use in civil aviation and in the military, however, for several reasons, the aircraft was not enough demand, and therefore its mass production was interrupted the following year.

The Emigh A-2 Trojan has a compact size, which provides the aircraft with a good aerodynamic performance, and very acceptable maneuverability, which in turn influences ease of control, and the development of maximum speed and fuel consumption. Nevertheless, the compactness of the dimensions is also very negative, in particular, when flying over distances over 400 kilometers, there is obvious discomfort, and in addition, the presence of only a small amount of free space does not allow transportation of any cargo on board.

In addition to civil aviation aircraft Emigh A-2 Trojan was used in the military sphere as a patrol and surveillance aircraft, however, for several reasons, operation of the aircraft here was very brief, and by the middle of 50-ies, air ship stopped using in this regard.

The cabin of the Emigh A-2 Trojan is designed for only two people, while the limited space inside the aircraft does not allow for comfortable flights, which was one of the reasons why the Emigh A-2 Trojan quickly lost its popularity Private owners. In fact, even the luggage placement was very problematic on board this aircraft, however, there were also very positive moments, in particular, the Emigh A-2 Trojan aircraft was equipped with a twin control, which allowed the aircraft to be used as a training airplane.

The aircraft model Emigh A-2 Trojan is equipped with a piston aircraft engine brand Continental C-85-12F, which is able to develop traction in 85 hp, which is very little, however, thanks to light and compact design of the fuselage, the plane could easily carry out flights on distances of up to 885 kilometers at a cruising speed of its movement in 190 km \ h.
