I know this means you will do what ATC instructed but why isn’t the instruction just repeated as it is when an aircraft is instructed to turn base etc?
Wilco = Will comply, meaning, we received what you said and were gonna do it.
It’s limited to certain applications though, so some things require a full read back instead of a simple “Wilco”.
Thanks Alaska. Best poster on IF right now = @anon38496261
I’m pretty sure it’s short for “will cooperate” or “will comply”. Either way, it means you have understood and will react according to the instructions.
Haha, thanks :)
Glad I could help!
for example, when ATC ask you exit rwy when you are in 70kt , you should send a"willco",and
continue to slow down until 35kt , then exit rwy.
