It is extremely concerning that the flight left Kirkwall without ATC cover. If the argument is that that posed no danger, it begs the question why the Civil Aviation Authority demands air traffic control presence at all.

Can the cabinet secretary assure me that that will never happen again and that people will not be put at risk in that way?
