"Yaw" in context

Yaw is a term used in aviation and aerospace to describe the rotation of an aircraft or spacecraft around its vertical axis. When an aircraft reaches an angle of yaw, it is said to be "yawing", and can indicate a change in direction of travel. Yaw is different from pitch and roll, which both refer to rotation around a horizontal axis. Yaw can be caused by a number of factors, from radials from a nearby object, to wind, to incorrect reaction by a pilot. It is a very important factor to consider when building, repairing or maintaining an aircraft, as yawing can lead to dangerous situations.
