A Canadian company is lifting aviation to new heights with the world’s first airplane made entirely from hemp. The fiber comes from the stalk of cannabis (marijuana) plants and has no mind-altering properties.
The hemp plane was engineered by Hempearth Group to carry the pilot and up to four passengers. The small plane has a wingspan of 36 feet and is powered by Hemp Jet A Bio Fuel and 100% hemp oil. The seats, wings, walls, and fabric pillows are all made from – you guessed it – hemp.
With a signed manufacturing contract in place, Velocity, Inc., a company based in Florida, plans to manufacture the botanical plane.
Pound for pound, hemp is 10 times stronger than steel. The lightweight material can handle much stronger forces before buckling and is much more flexible than metal steel.
Making traditional airplane parts produces toxic pollution and is regarded as unsustainable by environmentalists. Both mined and processed steel and plastic-based carbon fiber have a much worse impact on Mother Earth than hemp which has almost no agricultural downside.
Hemp plants conserve water since needing much less of it is needed to grow it compared to cotton. Better yet, hemp returns nutrients to the soil through the process of phytoremediation.
As far back as the 1960s, visionary economists (including my father) advised state governments to relax hemp laws and allow cultivation, especially in places where farmers received federal subsidies not to grow tobacco.
Unfortunately, most people had been brainwashed by Harry Anslinger’s racist slander campaign. In the early 1930s, the first director of the U.S. Federal Bureau of Narcotics launched an all-out assault against the helpful plant that was demonized in one popular film (Reefer Madness) as the “Assassin of Youth.”
By the 1960s, the majority of “average Americans” wanted nothing to do with any part of the wild weed and cries for hemp production fell on deaf ears. The nation had forgotten that the colonists grew hemp to compete with imported Russian sailcloth. More than 120,000 pounds of hemp fiber was used to rig the 44-gun USS Constitution, the oldest surviving Navy ship in the U.S., dubbed “Old Ironsides.”
As one historian noted, the U.S. had a long tradition of manufacturing vital commodities from marijuana crops:
“Where did all of that hemp fiber come from? It came from the cannabis Sativa fields of patriotic Revolutionary War-era farmers who originally grew the fibrous crop for the British Crown. Strong fibers formed strong nations in the pre-industrial age, and hemp was strategically important during the Revolutionary War.”
Now, Hempearth, founded in 2012, is making aviation history by offering the world’s first all-hemp airplane. The Canadian company also sells 100% HEMP Surfboards, Paddleboards, Oils, Cannabis, 100% HEMP Board, and various organic products. The innovative company is working on making a product called The World’s First HEMP Fiber Body Phone.
Hempearth is also cooking up hemp composites in Montreal that could replace fiberglass used not only in aviation but in many other industries.
Props are due to the anti-NWO officials behind Heampearth who refused to do business with chemical giant Dupont because “they don’t and never will sign or work with fascist companies that are associated with the military, the Rockefellers, the Rothchilds and or the Military-Industrial Complex.”
Company founder Derek Kesek revealed that Hempearth has set its corporate sights high – so to speak:
“This plane project is our first experiment with industrial hemp and we plan to explore many other uses. Once we establish structural testing and information from this project, we will apply it to other forms of construction. This is the kind of future we all want here on Earth. The sky may not be the limit.”
Kesek shared his personal approach to creating new technologies:
“I build things organically and take it one thing at a time. Richard Branson is my biggest inspiration because he is showing that it’s not business, as usual, anymore: if you want something you go get it.”
After completing its test flight, the world’s first hemp airplane will be put on public display at the Wright Brother’s Memorial in Kitty Hawk, North Carolina, where Wilbur and Orville conducted the first successful airplane flight.
