"Standby" Meaning

What does the ATC or pilot mean when they say “Infinite flight 2020, Standby”???

Wait for further information pretty much

In the real world (uk) it means sit and wait. You shouldn’t respond to a stand by call with anything

Usually it would be that they are trying to work something out then they will broadcast another message to ATC if i’m not wrong

In simple terms, it’s a way for ATC to tell you to wait while they figure something out or something like that.

Ok! makes sense everybody! thankyou for your help

On the expert server, IFATC can use Standby if they are communicating with another controller and is waiting for a response so they can give the best commands possible
