Our Experience

The Zion Paragliding flying school has been teaching students for 5 years now. Our school is based in Costa Rica where we proudly teach courses in Dominical for beginners and in Rivas for XC training. Once a year we venture to Iquique to teach our ‘all you need to know’ 9 day beginner paragliding course, followed by a 7 day progress cross, we believe this is the best place to learn how to fly on the planet, with out students averaging 20 hours of flying during their course time.
