Jessica Cox is not your average pilot。


The 32-year-old, who was born with a rare non-genetic birth defect that left her withoutarms, has never let her disability hold her back. Growing up, Cox did it all, from swim lessonsto girl scouts, modeling, tap dancing and Taekwondo — at the age of 14, she'd already earned ablack belt。


"I can't believe how much I did growing up. Every single day after school there was somethinggoing on. I don't know how my parents did it," Cox told TODAY. "I was expected to learn to dothings like everybody else in my own way, which worked out just fine."


She even learned how to fly a plane with her feet。


Becoming a pilot wasn't always a dream for Cox, but after going up in a single engine airplanewith a fighter pilot several years ago, she was inspired to overcome her initial fears。


"Being up in the air put me on edge, but that quickly went away," she said. "It still keeps me onedge, which I like."


In 2008, after extensive training, she earned her Light Sport Pilot Certificate, and in 2011 shenabbed the Guinness World Record for the "First Armless Person in the World Ever to HaveObtained a Pilot's License."


Cox has now traveled to 20 countries on six continents to share her inspirational story. Shebelieves anyone can excel, regardless of disability, with encouragement and support。

The plane looks like an Ercocoupe or Aircoupe. The plane has no rudder peddles. They are synced with the yoke. Good choice. Very stable and safe.
