Three-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 is out of print and difficult to find. Phoenix Graphix Publishing Services is pleased to make a new, paperback edition available for the 50th anniversary of Jerrie’s flight. This new edition includes maps and weather charts and photos that bring the story to life, and help the reader experience it more fully.
