Q:

What is improved climb?

A:

Climb performance is how well and how efficiently the airplane takes off. How much runway does it need? How fast does it need to go to lift into the air? 

 

Improved climb is a fancy way of saying "better takeoff" or "stronger takeoff" where the plane will take off more strongly from the ground, angling upwards at a faster pace. This can be done using faster speeds or longer wings, among other techniques.
