What does VS mean in Aviation?
What does VS stand for in aircraft systems? Does it help airplanes to land safely on runways? If it does, how far away does the aircraft need to be and what VS does the plane need to drop to in order to land safely?

Vs or Velocity (stall) is important during landing or any other time, as the aircraft will cease to be supported by lift from wings and start to fall.Source(s): Google. Try it!

Vs = stall speed
VS = vertical speed
An understanding of both is required for a safe landing.

VS means vertical speed. It means how fast you are dropping or going up

VS Stall speed or minimum steady flight speed for which the aircraft is still controllable

This is the air speed at which, for the given atmospheric conditions and weight of the aircraft, the plane can no longer remain airborne, where the wings are not able to provide adequate lift to keep in the air.
Basically, the minimum speed the plane can fly.
By contrast, this helps define the takeoff and landing speed, since those have to be a bit higher.

velocity speeds. used to determine speeds of different aircraft
