The Emigh Trojan was built in small numbers between 1948 and 1950 by the Emigh Aircraft Corporation and, later, the Emigh Trojan Aircraft Company. Its unique feature are the simplified construction methods used in its assembly. The metal fuselage of the Trojan is made up of two identical halves that are joined along their horizontal centerline. Its wingtips, tail surfaces and ailerons are all interchangeable. This side-by-side two-seat cabin airplane can still be seen at airports around the country.
