Engineered by pilots for pilots, Vertigo covers have been mindfully designed for high–performance, operational ease and versatility.
Innovation in every detail
Every Vertigo glider cover is innovatively designed with technical capability at its core. Resulting in a superior product that offers commercial and lightweight private aircraft operators the best possible protection, at the highest quality.
Easy to operate
To facilitate easy assembly and removal on the airfield we manufacture our glider covers in three separate sections. These comprise of a canopy cover, fuselage and fin cover, and tailplane and wing cover, custom-designed to naturally mimic wing splits.
Breathable and water resistant
Breathability is integral to preventing moisture build-ups beneath the cover’s surface. As such we develop all Vertigo Glider Covers from high-performance fabric that’s not only weather-resistant but naturally breathable too.
Engineered for an extended life
The custom-nature of our Vertigo manufacturing guarantees that every cover we create is bespoke to the aircraft it’s been designed for, resulting in a unique, glove-like fit, that minimises movement and adds years to our covers’ lifespan.
Secure over-flap fastening
Our Glider covers are fastened together with a series of Velcro over flaps, which adjoin each section of the cover securely in place. Easy to connect and undo, these Velcro fastenings also prevent water from entering the cover’s seals.
Custom carry case
Every Vertigo Glider cover comes with a fully protective carry case, in a custom-size, created in tandem with your cover requirements. Each one is lightweight and durable, providing added protection for your cover in transit to the airfield.
As a customisable element we also offer the option to have a clear and weatherproof solar window panel as part of your cover’s design, which harnesses natural daylight to maintain battery life.

Aircraft competition numbers
For competition aircrafts we can also apply your unique entrant’s number to the fin cover segment of the glider canopy upon request, an additional customisable service that supports competition flyers to stand out on the tarmac.
After dark visibility
Vertigo custom glider covers also incorporate Night Glow technology, an innovative reflective beading, sewn into the cover’s seams, that ensures the wingspan of your glider can be easily seen after dark and in adverse weather.
