Shaft109 - you're right to suspect that 200 launches p.a per glider is unimpressive. Our small weekend-only club last year managed 1300 launches between two training gliders or 650 per glider. I'm guessing that the 7-day a week clubs manage well north of 1000 launches per glider. So if you can solo a student from 50 launches that only represents 4 students per annum per glider, even assuming no Air Experience flying gets in the way of Ab Initio training. Not hugely impressive.
