Frequently asked questions

What is WILCO?

WILCO is a mobile app for the GA community. It makes it easy to stay connected, share the passion, discover, learn more from each other, and create more flying opportunities.

Why WILCO?

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 build and strengthen the GA community through fun, useful features and meaningful content.
WILCO is social at its core but the intent is to incorporate features and functionality that take it beyond a social app. Competency, safety, proficiency and mentorship will all 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).
  2. Choose to Sign Up, fill in your full name and your role(s) in the GA community, and then tap on Next.
  3. Then enter your email, set your password.
  4. New users should then set up their Profile… and that’s it!
