The work on the creation of the light-engine aircraft Garrison Melmoth 2 was conducted for more than 20 years, and the design for this period has undergone at least 5 various changes, in particular, the original aircraft was supposed to be made single, however, due to the rather high cost, It was decided to create a two-seater aircraft, with the arrangement of seats in the arrangement one after another. Nevertheless, in the final version, the aircraft nevertheless began to be positioned as a four-seater sports aircraft, however, due to extensive design work, for the entire period only one aircraft was built, which is currently in operation from the owner of California.

In a relatively small cockpit, the Garrison Melmoth 2 can accommodate up to four people - including also one pilot. For the transport of goods, this aircraft is not adapted because of the features of its design, however, in fact, for this purpose it was not intended from the time of its design. Maximum range of the flight Garrison Melmoth 2 is limited to 980 kilometers, which in turn meets the requirements for aircraft of this type, although more aircraft is used to perform aerobatic tricks and flights at high speeds, which is typical for sports 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.

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.
