I do not get it ! How can a angle of climb be 286 ? I still miss something since I think an angleof 15 would be quite a climb.Please explain.TksHerbert Werni

It's the airspeed that produces the best angle, not the angle itself. The actual value of the angle will be variable depending on a bunch of factors. (climb power setting selection, weight etc)
