Local standby (in the context of aerodrome emergency plans)

A situation in which activation of only the airport-based agencies involved in the aerodrome emergency plan is warranted. A local standby will be the normal response when an aircraft approaching an airport is known or is suspected to have developed some defect, but the trouble is not such as would normally involve any serious difficulty in effecting a safe landing. A local standby will be initiated in response to a PAN call.
