Q:

What are the types of movement of an aircraft?

A:

There are three types of movement of an aircraft: pitch, yaw, and roll. Roll is controlled by the ailerons and rotates the airplane. Yaw turns the airplane and is controlled by the rudder. Finally, pitch is controlled by the elevator and changes the altitude of the airplane.
