The axes of rotation on an aircraft are called pitch, yaw, and roll. Pitch is simply pointing the nose of the aircraft up or down. Yaw is turning the aircraft to the left or right. Roll is turning the aircraft such that the sides go up and down (rolling to the left would make an airplane's left wing dip down).
