An aeroplane performs a right turn, the slip indicator is left of neutral. One way to co-ordinate the turn is to apply:
  • A
    less right bank.
  • B
    more left rudder.
  • C
    less left rudder.
  • D
    more right rudder.

A coordinated turn is a turn where there is no sideslip or skid, this is the most effective and therefore preferable way to turn.In a coordinated turn, the turn and bank indicator in the plane shows the ball in the center.

If the turn is not coordinated, you’re either in a slip or a skid.These two things are different and shall therefore be eliminated differently.A slipping turn is a turn where the aircraft’s nose is outside of the turning radius and the tail is in the turn radius.

A slip is caused by using too much bank and too little rudder.A skidding turn is a turn where the aircraft’s nose is inside of the turning radius and the tail is outside of the turn radius.A skid is caused by using too much rudder and not enough bank.
