Incredible Pilot Born Without Arms Won't Let Anything Crush Her Dreams

Jessica Cox was born without arms.

For most people, having a disability this severe would make leading a normal life exceedingly difficult.

But Cox was determined to be different.

After pushing herself to learn how to complete everyday tasks with her feet, Cox took it a step further, and in 2008, she learned how to fly.

Unsurprisingly, it wasn't easy.

According to her website,

It took three states, four airplanes, two flight instructors and a discouraging year to find the right aircraft: a 1946 415C Ercoupe Airplane. She received the Guinness World Record for being the first person certified to fly an airplane with only their feet.
