Three-Eight Charlie

Three-Eight Charlie CoverThree-Eight Charlie is the story of Jerrie Mock’s record-setting flight as the first woman to solo around the world in 1964 in a single-engine Cessna 180. It’s an insightful and well written account that includes intrigue and heroism, and discusses the cultures and geography of the world at the time. This book is a great read for aviation enthusiasts as well as young people, and anyone with big dreams.

Three-Eight Charlie
was originally published in 1970, but was out of print and difficult to find. Phoenix Graphix Publishing Services published a full color, gold embossed hardback collector’s edition in 2013, which is now SOLD OUT.

A black and white paperback and eBook were made available for the 50th anniversary of Jerrie’s flight, in 2014. The new editions include maps and weather charts and photos that bring the story to life, and help the reader experience it more fully.


Now, in celebration of the new exhibit at the Smithsonian Institution, we are proud to announce the release of a beautiful full color paperback! We’re pleased that technology now makes possible image quality like the Anniversary edition, at a paperback price. Dorothy Cochrane, curator of Jerrie’s plane, wrote the introduction.

This Anniversary edition is sold out.

The black and white paperback remains available for $17.95.

The new full-color paperback is now available for $22.95 for US purchases.
