Jessica Cox, a young woman with no arms, stands up in the cockpit of a propeller plane. The words Right Footed hover above.

Born without arms, Jessica Cox never allowed herself to believe that she couldn’t accomplish her dreams. An accomplished martial artist, college graduate and motivational speaker, Jessica is also the world’s only armless airplane pilot, a mentor, and an advocate for the disabled. Directed by Emmy Award winning filmmaker Nick Spark, Right Footed chronicles Jessica’s amazing story of overcoming adversity and follows her over a period of two years as she becomes a mentor for children with disabilities and their families, and a disability rights advocate working in the U.S.A. and abroad.
