skid

skid
i. An uncoordinated turn in which the airplane moves inside the turn because of an insufficient aileron or excessive rudder.
ii. In helicopters, a fixed tubular landing gear, often provided with small auxiliary wheels to provide ground mobility.
iii. A rigid ski-shaped member projecting ahead of the landing gear to prevent them from nosing over.
iv. A support for the tail-wheel on the ground in airplanes of early years.
v. A member mounted at the bottom of the aft end of the fuselage of an aircraft with a tricycle undercarriage. The skid absorbs the shock and prevents damage to the aircraft structure if the skid touches the ground either on the takeoff or the landing.
