Aircraft pilot is not on her to-do list. However, that changed when a member of Wright Flight, a Tucson-based non-profit group, approached her after a Rotary Club talk she gave in 2005. The group uses aviation as motivation.

A fighter pilot named Robin Stoddard who represented the group asked if she would like to fly an airplane. Being the achiever and optimist that she is, Cox decided to give it a try and was instantly hooked. She has learned to fly an “Ercoupe," one of the few planes without rudder pedals, the special unique design allows Cox to use her feet as hands her left on the throttle and her right on the yoke.

Unlike others who got their license in six months, On October 10, 2008, Cox earned her pilot's certificate after three years of training, had three flying instructors and practiced 89 hours of flying and is qualified to fly a light-sport aircraft to altitudes of 10,000 feet. Jessica Cox flew in a single engine airplane for the first time via Wright Flight in 2005.

Jessica Cox Motivational Quotes:

  • “Handicaps are mindsets. Whatever it is that stands in the way of achieving something, that's when it's a handicap. I prefer to see them as obstacles or challenges. This is how I've been my whole life. I don't know any different. I just live my life through my feet.
  • It’s only human to have low moments in life because if you don’t, then you won’t feel the high, exciting times.”
  • “Takeoff isn't scary at all - just the landing. Once you're in the air, you feel that sense of freedom of no limits.”
  • “If you would've asked me about getting a pilot's license before 2005, I'd say you were crazy. After I graduated college, a fighter pilot asked me if I wanted to go up on a flight in a single-engine plane. I always had a fear about being in an airplane, but I took this opportunity to go up on my first flight in a single-engine rather than a big commercial plane I was accustomed to. I was hooked and made a commitment to become a pilot. I wanted to motivate others to not let fear stand in the way of their opportunities.”

Jessica cox

  • “If you can fly an airplane competently, you can fly it safely even if something does happen.”

  • “Prosthetics just felt very foreign to me: You wear them on your shoulders, strap them to your chest, and they're heavy and uncomfortable. If someone gave you a hug, you'd miss that touch. They were more like a cage for me.”
  • “I do not have arms but that is not what determines where I can do.”
  • “Our great fear is not so much to not be up to measure; it is that we are stronger over and above all measure.”
  • “The human being must live some difficult moments in life to have emotional moments.”
  • “The greater the difficulty, the greater the glory.”
