Video: Jessica Cox Has No Arms But with One Pilot's License and Two Black Belts in Taekwondo

Jessica Cox Has No Arms But with One Pilot's License and Two Black Belts in Tae kwon doJessica Cox, 25, is truly an inspiration. She was born with no arms, but she is the first person without arms to get two black belts in the American Tae Kwon-Do Association and the first woman pilot in the history of aviation to fly airplanes using only her feet.

In addition to Jessica's achievements, she also has a degree in Psychology from University of Arizona and a good career as a motivational speaker.

Though she was born with bilateral congenital limb deficiency or having no arms, she never stop believing. Hence, she proved everyone that this is not just a world for "two-handed" people.



"The plane she is flying is called an Ercoupe (pronounced air-coupe) which does have rudder pedals. The Ercoupe was made in the late 40's and early 50's. The unique thing about Ercoupe is it's one of the few airplanes to be made and certified without pedals. Without rudder pedals Jessica is free to use her feet as hands."--gmcjetpilot of Youtube
