forward slip


forward slip
A flight maneuver in which the aircraft follows its intended flight path but its longitudinal axis is not aligned with this path. The pilot applies the aileron in one direction and the rudder in the opposite. The aircraft then loses height rapidly. The greater the amount of bank and rudder application, the greater is the rate of descent. If the aircraft is displaced from the intended track and flown in such a way that it recovers its track, while maintaining its longitudinal axis parallel to the desired track, it is called a sideslip.
