There are three rotations about three axes that an aircraft in flight is capable of making: pitch, roll and yaw. Yaw is the rotation about the axis running vertically through an aircraft, perpendicular to the body of the wings. Yaw changes the horizontal direction in which the nose of the aircraft is pointing, moving the nose from side to side, and is primarily controlled by the aircraft’s rudder.
