Mock gained fame for being the first woman to successfully complete a solo flight around the world in 1964. Her groundbreaking achievement shattered gender stereotypes in the aviation industry and paved the way for other women to pursue their dreams of becoming pilots. Mock's remarkable career and contributions to aviation have undoubtedly contributed to her financial success.

She fell in love with flying at the age of seven, as a result of riding in the cockpit of a small airplane. After graduating from high school, she entered Ohio State University's aeronautical engineering program.
The plane (nicknamed "The Spirit of Columbus") in which she made her famous flight was put on display in Virginia's National Air and Space Museum.
