::: An Arm-less Girl :::

Jessica Cox (born 1983 in Arizona) is the world’s first licensed armless pilot, as well as the first arm less black-belt in the American Taekwondo Association (she now has two black belts in Taekwondo).

She was born without arms due to a rare birth defect.

She earned her pilot’s license 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 training through an Able Flight scholarship.

Cox has not used prosthetic arms since she turned 14. .

Using her feet as most people use their hands, she is able, among other things, to drive a car (she has an unrestricted license and drives a car without modifications), to type on a keyboard (25 words per minute), to pump her own gas, and to put in and remove her contact lenses.

She is also a certified SCUBA diver.

Cox holds a Bachelor’s degree in psychology from the University of Arizona and works as a motivational speaker.
