17 May 2011: [Look Mom, No Hands - The Jessica Cox Story] Jessica Cox, who was born in the early 80’s, has become the first woman in history to fly a plane, without arms.
Jessica was born with an unexplained birth defect, which resulted in her missing both of her arms. But this never stopped her from doing anything.
Jessica’s role model is her mother, and Jessica says ‘my father never shed a tear since my birth, as he does not consider me to be a victim’.
Jessica always lived life to the fullest, and before learning to fly an airplane, she was involved in gymnastics, dancing and singing as a child. Then, she went onto swimming, surfing, driving a car, putting her own petrol in, playing the piano and even earning her black belt in Tai Quan Do.
After graduating from college in Arizona in 2005, where Jessica gained her degree in Psychology, she decided to overcome a fear of flying that she once had, and began to learn how to fly a plane.
