Why a Hemp Plane?
￼Hemp is up to 10x stronger than fiberglass and pound for pound stronger than steel, lighter, flame retardant and leaves virtually a zero footprint on the environment. Hemp is also the most bio diverse crop on earth with over 25,000 uses and counting.
How it's being built?
The Hemp Plane is being 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 is assuring that the Hemp Plane takes to the skies with 100% success. Everything on the plane, that is usually made from fiberglass and other non-sustainable materials are being replaced with hemp. ￼ About the 1st Hemp Plane and What parts of the plane will be made from Hemp?
A sleek 4-seater twin engine diesel aircraft with a cruising speed just between 210 mph to 310 mph Made from over 75% Hemp, including the seats, pillows, wings, outer shell and some interior parts.
