Jessica Cox suffered a rare birth defect and was born without any arms. None of the prenatal tests her mother took showed there was anything wrong with her. And yet she was born with this rare congenital disease, but also with a great spirit.

The psychology graduate can write, type, drive a car, brush her hair and talk on her phone simply using her feet. Ms Cox, from Tuscon, Arizona, USA, is also a former dancer and double black belt in Tai Kwon-Do. She has a no-restrictions driving license, she flies planes and she can type 25 words a minute.

The plane she is flying is called an Ercoupe and it is one of the few airplanes to be made and certified without pedals. Without rudder pedals Jessica is free to use her feet as hands. She took three years instead of the usual six months to complete her lightweight aircraft licence, had three flying instructors and practiced 89 hours of flying, becoming the first pilot with no arms.


What makes Jessica's airplane different from common planes?

  1. It has been certified and practiced for 89 hours

  2. It is one of the best airplanes in the world

  3. Jessica can fly it without using arms

  4. Jessica can fly it without any license

Pada paragraf terakhir tertera “…few airplanes to be made and certified pedals” (sedikit pesawat yang dibuat dan mempunyai pedal bersertifikat) dan “…and practiced 89 hours of flying” (dan telah melakukan penerbangan selama 89 jam). Oleh karena itu jawaban A adalah jawaban yang tepat.
