What Does “Roger” Mean in Radio Communication?

Roger is aviation terminology that is used to indicate that a transmission was received. It’s part of a standard voice procedure that is used to simplify communications and to reduce confusion. Because radio communication can cut out, it is important to ensure that communications, especially between aircraft crew and air traffic control are as efficient as possible and are standardized as much as possible. Roger is used to confirm that information has been received so that the sender knows that their communication went through.
