The Hemp Plane is not just another plane and no you can't smoke it. You can fly high in the sky with it, though. Hemp is up to 10x stronger than fiberglass and leaves virtually a zero footprint on the environment. Hemp is one of the strongest most durable fibers on earth. With over 25,000 applications it is also one of the most versatile fibers in the world as well.

Hemp Can Save The Planet
Hemp Can Save The Planet

The Hemp Plane will be built using an existing design. Doing this helps to cut costs by eliminating the timely and expensive prototype phase. Utilizing a model that already works will assure that the Hemp Plane will take to the skies with 100% success when it comes time to fly. We’re taking everything on the plane that is currently made from fiberglass and other non-sustainable materials and replacing it with hemp products. When everything is said and done the Hemp Plane will be constructed from 75% Hemp or more!

This sleek, aerodynamic, twin-engine, four-seater Hemp Plane will have a cruising speed of over 200 mph. It will be powered across the skies by two biodiesel engines that run on none other than Hemp Bio-fuel. This amazing one of a kind aircraft will show the world a cleaner, greener and more environmentally friendly alternative to the current manufacturing products used in aviation today. The color of this modern marvel could be made into any color of choosing but will be the natural color of hemp to commemorate this historic aircraft.

Risks and challenges

The World's First Hemp Plane Production

The World's First Hemp Plane will be built by Velocity, Inc. (Sebastian, Florida). Velocity, Inc. understands every step from design to direct fulfillment of finished aircraft.

The Hempearth Team and Velocity, Inc. teams began collaborating at the testing stage almost two years ago in Sebastian, Florida with Derek Kesek and Duane Swing, the CEO and founder of Velocity, Inc. After tests were completed and a signed manufacturing contract was in place, we worked closely with the Velocity, Inc. team to ensure The World's First Hemp aircraft was designed for high quality, and high performance. The Velocity, Inc. team includes highly skilled aeronautical engineers, mold makers, machinists and composite experts with over 20 years of experience in aircraft building which reduces the risks and challenges tremendously.

Velocity Inc., was formed in 1984 by Danny Maher in Sebastian, Florida, to develop and market a new 4-seat canard aircraft, based upon the successful Long-EZ design. After the prototype flew in July 1985, several kits were sold and close contact was maintained with initial builders to get valuable feedback in areas where the design could be (and subsequently was) improved. The Velocity received rave reviews by all of the flying press, and the 173 "LW" (long wing) model went on to further enhance the Velocity design. Received rave reviews by all of the flying press, and the 173 "LW" (long wing) model went on to further enhance the Velocity design.

We believe that the risks described above are manageable, expecting a successful Kickstarter campaign.
