The minimum sink airspeed, Vms, is the speed resulting in the lowest descent rate and, therefore, the longest time aloft when gliding. To find Vms, we use some basic math to establish the glide polar, a function associating to each airspeed the vertical velocity of the aircraft in still air (where airspeed equals groundspeed).
