Tributes for a very fine pilot, 24 Feb 2006 [cached]

Mr Watt remembered him bringing his Islander aircraft to a halt on Skerries by turning her 180 degrees at the end of the grass runway.

THE SHETLAND Flyer offers an insight into the life, family and friends of Loganair pilot Eddie Watt.
Set against the backdrop of stunning Shetland scenery, we fly with Eddie in his intimate Islander plane as he visits outlying islands and learn snippets of history and culture en route.We hear of his Christian faith and how it has influenced his life.
The DVD cover tells us that Eddie ran a plumbing business but was called to become a pilot in Africa with Mission Aviation Fellowship.None of this is shown until the last five minutes, however.Such a dramatic life change needed more emphasis and left some unanswered questions.How did he fund his flying lessons, and what did his family think about going to Africa?Why did they return to Shetland, and how hard was it to re-adjust?
Eddie's Christian testimony was interesting ­ inspirational, even, but more could have been made of the challenges it entailed.
The commitment to go to Africa was made on a stormy night and Eddie also tells us of an "interesting" electrical storm encountered while flying.
Rhona, whose parents Rosemary and ... [cached]
Rhona, whose parents Rosemary and Eddie Watt are well known in the isles, began the trip with a practice run in the van to Aberdeen to say farewell to family.
Rhona's mum Rosemary, who was a primary school teacher in Shetland before moving to Aberdeen with Eddie, said this crossing had proved to be the most difficult part of the journey.
She said: "I can't say I haven't been concerned but they have planned very well and have taken advice from the British embassies, and they have done everything to ensure they are safe."
Rhona's adventures are a far cry from the life she led as a child attending Scalloway Primary, but her sense of adventure may well have been in the blood.
Eddie, a pilot for Loganair, took his family to Kenya in 1992 where he and Rosemary worked for Mission Aviation Fellowship.
Rhona, now 26, spent her young­er years in Nairobi, before returning to Shetland to finish her education at Anderson High School.
She studied nursing at Aberdeen University and returned to Shetland for a further two years, working both in the Accident and Emergency Department at Gilbert Bain Hospital, and also as a district nurse.
However, she never lost contact with the boy next door, Simon, who she met in Kenya when she was just 10.Rosemary has kept in regular contact with her eldest daughter and Simon.

But it was not only the farewell of a much respected company, it was also a very personal goodbye for pilot Eddie Watt, who has served the islanders for the last 10 years.
He said: "A very emotional day with lots of mixed feelings.
Mr Watt is staying with Loganair and will start his training to fly the company's Saab aircrafts on the Sumburgh to Aberdeen route, next week.

Eddie Watt, a former plumber from Scalloway, gave himself to a Christian lifestyle and trained to become a pilot for the Mission Aviation Fellowship in Africa.
On his return to Shetland in 1996 Eddie joined Loganair to fly the Islander aircraft to the outer isles, and became an accepted part of life on Foula, Fair Isle, Papa Stour, and the Out Skerries. When the inter-island flights were taken over by Direct Flight Ltd., on behalf of the SIC, Eddie transferred to flying aircraft for Loganair between Aberdeen and Sumburgh.
Hopefully Eddie will decide to edit this page and give us the full story.
