Aero-TV: Flight of Inspiration - Speaker Jessica Cox Receives Her Wings

Able Flight Wing Recipient, Jessica Cox, Speaks to EAA AirVenture Attendees

On July 28th, 2009, Able Flight held a special ceremony to recognize the tremendous achievements of three remarkable new pilots, Mal Zakery, Jeremy Maddox, and Jessica Cox. Each surmounted significant physical disabilities to attain their pilot’s license in recent years. Special guest Miles O’Brien said, “Aviation is hope. This shows that hope does indeed triumph.” There has not been, however, an accomplishment in aviation history quite like Jessica Cox’s triumph.

Born without arms, Cox has spent her 26 years proving that anything is possible with perseverance and passion, despite the challenges that one might face.  On May 11th, 2008, Cox became the only licensed pilot in the world to fly with only her feet.  Instructed by Parrish Traweek, Cox received her training in an Ercoupe 415-C with the generous support of an Able Flight Scholarship. 

When not taking to the skies, Jessica Cox travels the world as a motivational speaker sharing her incredible story and her unique insights into self-empowerment.

Able Flight has been a strong visionary of that same attitude; created by pilots who understood the transformative experience of flight, the non-profit organization strives to enable those with disabilities an opportunity to receive flight training. 

Supported by donations and sponsorships, Able Flight rewards aspiring pilots with scholarships each year to pursue this unique challenge. Join Aero-TV as we share Jessica Cox’s enthusiastic, moving speech with EAA AirVenture attendees.
