TUCSON, Ariz. — The world's first armless pilot Jessica Cox has received a plane she has been trying to get for more than ten years.

The Air-Coupe 415C doesn't have rudder pedals, which makes it a simpler model to use and allows Cox to fly it easily.

Cox's non-profit "Rightfooted Foundation International" will co-own the plane with Tucson Aviation Club Desert Sport Flyers.
