Glider Covers

Attention to Detail

Innovation is at the forefront of Vertigo's ethos, as we constantly strive for the very best in cover technology. Every little feature is carefully considered to ensure our covers provide your aircraft with the required protection, and more.

Attention to Detail

Easy Fitting

For ease of use, Glider Covers are manufactured in separate, manageable parts. A set as standard consists of: canopy cover, fuselage and fin cover, tailplane cover and wings. Wing covers are made in sections to match natural wing splits.

Easy Fitting

Water Resistant and Breathable

The key to a top performing Glider Cover is its ability to breathe. Being both breathable and water resistant makes our fabric a cut above the rest. Any moisture trapped between the cover and glider is effortlessly wicked away.

Water Resistant and Breathable

Figure-hugging Shape

All Glider Covers are custom-designed to fit the airframe closely. This prevents flapping in windy conditions and increases the lifetime of the cover.

Secure Fittings

Individual sections are fastened to one another with secure velcro over flaps. Easy-to-fit, the velcro seals keep the weather out.

Outstanding fabrics

The Elite All Weather is simply stunning, it takes the requirements of a cover and exceeds them. With many patented additions and subtle touches the life of the cover is far exceeded. Not just functionality is improved, for the first time style has been brought to the airfield.

The perfect type of cover for indoor use. These durable, machine washable covers keep bird mess and dust off the aircraft. Made from the same patterns as the all-weather covers, these simplified versions are quicker and easier to put on. Leaving more time for chatting in the bar, and less time fitting covers.
