Definition: Slip

A slip is a condition where the aircraft starts slipping inwards or sideways towards the lower wing. A slip can occur during an uncoordinated turn, or during an intentional side slip to offset a cross wind or to increase drag to increase the aircraft’s rate of descent. Both of these slips are caused by cross or uncoordinated flight  controls in roll and yaw.
