Flight dynamics

the science of aircraft and spacecraft design

Flight dynamics is the study of the performance, stability, and control of things flying through the air or in outer space. It is concerned with how forces that act on the vehicle determine its velocity and altitude with respect to time.[1]

An aircraft that is flying can turn around three different axes.
