While Mr. Maurice Hewlett has been distinguishing himself, apart from his great success as a novelist, as a politician, his wife has fallen a victim to the fascination of the aeroplane. Indeed, with a partner, she has established a flourishing aviation school at Brooklands, and several of her pupils have made some record flights. It was through attending the Blackpool aviation meeting that Mrs. Hewlett became attracted by flying. It "got hold of her," to use her own expression, and she went home determined to become an airwoman. She went to France, found an excellent teacher, and, later, an ideal partner, with the result that they became the joint owners of a Farman biplane which Maeterlinck christened " The Blue Bird." Mr. Hewlett, too, is also greatly interested in aeronautics, and has made some interesting flights.
