On March 19th, 1964, Jerrie Mock, a 38-year-old mother of three, jumped in the family Cessna 180 and departed Port Columbus (OH) Airport. Just over 23,000 miles later, after nearly a month of facing foreign cultures, mechanical problems and dangerous weather, she arrived back in Columbus to BECOME THE FIRST WOMAN TO FLY SOLO AROUND THE WORLD.
This story may be the biggest secret in all of aviation history. As a writer and pilot, I was drawn to this story because it had all the elements of a classic Hero's journey.
In 2002, I interviewed Jerrie and began researching this fascinating story, and have written a full-length feature film screenplay about her incredible and historic flight.
If you are a representative of a studio or production group interested in acquiring this screenplay, please contact me personally.
