And then there were two: paraglider Wishart completes his training

Shetland has a second paramotor pilot. Andrew Wishart from Cunningsburgh has recently completed his training in Wales and now flies his powered paraglider regularly in the Cunningsburgh and surrounding area.

Fellow paramotor pilot John Coutts joined him on a flight in nice calm conditions this week and captured this image of Andrew, his glider framing the Noop of Noss and the Bard of Bressay. Athough there is an impression of being at sea, both pilots were in fact over dry land at all times.
