[A flight instrument that] shows the rate and direction of a turn. It tells the pilot if he is performing a coordinated turn using all his controls most efficiently.

CONT

Turn and slip indicator. The instrument is composed of two components. The turn needle is an electrically driven gyroscope which indicates the rate of turn. The marks (often called the doghouse) on either side of center represents a bank angle of 15 degrees. ... The glass level containing the black ball is called the inclinometer. It provides the pilot with a measure of the turn quality. During both straight and level flight and during turns the ball should stay centered. The turn and slip indicator acts as a partial backup to the attitude indicator in that it shows rate of turn.

OBS

This type of instrument is usually found in older aircraft. ... The turn coordinator is similar to the turn and slip indicator. Is is found in more modern aircraft. The main difference is in the presentation of the turn. A miniature airplane is used to show the bank instead of a needle.

OBS

The turn and bank indicator ... a similiar instrument is the turn and slip indicator. This instrument will have a needle instead of a symbolic airplane, and will react to turns only, and not to bank.

OBS

turn and slip indicator: term and definition standardized by NATO.

bille-aiguille : Instrument électrique indiquant si l'avion est en virage à gauche ou à droite. Le bas de l'instrument est équipé d'une bille qui évolue dans un liquide amortisseur; celle-ci permet de contrôler l'absence de «dérapage» de l'avion durant un virage. Aux limites, un fort dérapage sous facteur de charge peut entraîner un décrochage. La coordination s'obtient en agissant avec les pieds sur les palonniers.

CONT

L'indicateur de virage. Il est composé de deux éléments indépendants; une bille et une aiguille, d'où son autre appellation : bille-aiguille. La bille renseigne sur la symétrie du vol. L'aiguille renseigne sur le sens du virage.
