Aviation Industry Pioneer. She was a record breaker on land, sea and in the air. She drove for 24 hours in a Bentley, at an average speed of 90 MPH. Having purchased an aircraft from a store in Regent Street, London, she flew around the world. She was also a pioneer of in-air refuelling, following a non-stop flight of 55 hours around the Isle of Wight. During the 1930's she set up her own airline company, employing the world's first air stewardess between London and Paris.
