Leading edge faps also known as slats don't really create lift. The effect on lift coefficient is minor (less than 10% in general) but they help increase the stall angle of attack. As a summary, flaps creates lift, by increasing surface area and profil camber whereas slats postpone the stall and allow for higher AOA by reducing pressure drop around the ...
