1 degree flaps during climb out

I just finished my climb in a 737-400 and during climb out, I left the slats out and I was climbing at 5000 fpm, with only 9 degrees picth up. There wasn't too much drag either. This caused me to reach my cruising altitude much easier and quicker and waste less fuel. On my flap placard it does say 1 degree flaps = 230 KIAS though. 😕

Do slats = flaps?

Have a look at this Wikipedia article JTH.

Yeah, slats are on the front of the wing, they are deployed in FS buy giving it 1 degree of flaps. (no flaps extend at that time though, just the slats)

That could have happened because the GW was down or your payload was less.

no, it was the same as usual, but do you think would overstess them maybe?
