MEET JESSICA COX,THE FIRST LICENSED ARMLESS PILOT WHO FLIES A PLANE WITH HER LEG (PHOTOS)




Jessica Cox is the world’s first licensed
armless pilot, as well as the first armless
black-belt holder in the American
Taekwondo Association. She was born in
Arizona without arms due to a rare birth
defect.
Jessica Cox graduated from the University
of Arizona in 2005 with a bachelor’s
degree in psychology and a minor in
communications.
Cox flew in a single engine airplane for the
first time via Wright Flight in 2005. Cox
earned her pilot’s certificate on October
10, 2008, after three years of training, and
is qualified to fly a light-sport aircraft to
altitudes of 10,000 feet. She received her
flight training through an Able Flight
scholarship and soloed under the
instruction of Parrish Traweek.
At the age of 10, Cox began training in
taekwondo at a school in her home town
of Sierra Vista. A1 14, she earned her first
black belt. While in college at the University
of Arizona Cox restarted her taekwondo
training at an American Taekwondo
Association club on campus. In an effort
to help future students without the use of
arms the instructors created an entire
training curriculum by modifying the
standard material from the ATA.



Cox has since gone on to earn her second
and third degree black belts in the ATA.
Cox has also earned the title of 2014
Arizona State Champion in forms. It should
be noted that she did not compete in a
special abilities ring.
Her Sport Pilot Certificate is for an ERCO
415-C Ercoupe which the Federal Aviation
Administration has designated a light
sport aircraft. Designed in the 1940s, the
Ercoupe was built without rudder pedals.
Instead, the rudder is interconnected with
the ailerons through the yoke. This unique
design allows Cox to control the airplane
with one foot controlling the yoke while
the other foot controls the throttle.
