XC Pilot and Founder of Zion Paragliding
Zion Loddby is an established and experienced pilot, clocking over 3000 flying hours, with six years experience, not to mention Central America’s no. 1 in cross country paragliding. Fearless and licensed, Zion will make your flying experience the best yet. First time tandem flyers can expect a relaxing and therapeutic experience. Whilst those looking to get off the ground will be in the most capable hands to learn to paraglide independently and progress to the next level.
A former student of the Zion Paragliding school, Beth is now a P3 USHPA rated pilot, clocking over 100 hours in her first year of flying alone. You’ll find her chatting with clients at the take off and giving safety briefings, helping beginners with tips and tricks to pick up ground handling skills, and occasionally working on the website to keep the cogs turning. If she’s not doing any of that, then she’s probably somewhere flying in the clouds above.
When it comes to flying, the team at Zion Paragliding takes your safety seriously, of course enjoyment and fun is second to that. Zion is highly accomplished and experienced international paragliding pilot with full pilot, tandem and instructor licensing and ratings from USHPA. Combined with his local knowledge of launch locations across Costa Rica, Chile, Colombia and Europe, weather patterns and thermal currents, any flight under Zion’s guidance will be well advised to ensure every second in the air is a pleasure and safe.
