Frequently Asked Questions

What is WILCO?

WILCO is a mobile app for the GA community. It is aimed primarily at GA pilots but flight schools, flying clubs and airport communities will also find value in using WILCO as a communications and engagement platform to attract and retain active pilots.


WILCO’s founder has been flying for over four decades and spent his career in commercial aviation. He believes that GA deserves its own mobile platform to allow users to build their own GA community.  WILCO will also serve to strengthen the larger GA community through fun, useful features and meaningful content.

WILCO started out simply as a social and networking app but increasingly we saw an opportunity to build a platform that serves to help users fly more and fly safely.  Proficiency and mentorship will figure prominently in WILCO’s future.

How can I be part of the WILCO?

Creating your account is easy:

  1. Download WILCO from the App Store (iOS) or Google Play Store (Android).
