I've done two week long courses at MGC. Both very enjoyable with excellent instructors. It must be one of the most scenic places to learn gliding. Highly recommended.

I booked a one day course, cost £165. After two whole days I had four launches and perhaps 30 minutes airtime. There were too many pilots trying to fly and I spent most of both days watching others launch or helping cart gliders about. Nobody...More
