The V shape helps the birds conserve energy by reducing the air resistance. It also aids in visual assurance and teamwork.

Another answer is: Flying in formation allows geese to keep one another in view and to respond quickly when the bird in front changes direction, speed, or altitude. - awake magazine 2006
