At acceleration height, set flaps up maneuvering speed and retract flaps on the Flap Retraction Schedule. Begin flap retraction at V2 + 15 knots, except for a flaps 1 takeoff. For a Flaps 1 takeoff, begin flap retraction when reaching the Flaps 1 maneuvering speed.

The maneuver speed provides margin to stick shaker for at least an inadvertent 15 deg overshoot beyond the normal 25 deg angle of bank.

With flaps up and above 3000 feet AGL, select VNAV or set the desired climb speed in the MCP speed window. Before selecting VNAV, flaps should be retracted because VNAV does not provide overspeed protection for the leading edge devices.
