The purpose of this Aviation Information Services (AIS) LLC website is to help Canadair CRJ900 pilots connect to the Red Triangle Productions (RTP) LLC company web site to enable the pilot to find the CRJ900 training materials and study guides. These superlative CRJ900 CBT digital pilot handbooks are trademarked as Visual Oral Switch-Light Guides (VOSLG). Every pilot assigned to fly the CRJ900 will need to understand how all the cockpit lights and switches work, and how all the airplane systems operate. Since 1999 Red Triangle Productions LLC has created the most unique and innovative switch-light guides and system study guides ever seen in aviation. Pilots in over 500 airlines, companies, agencies, associations and governments around the world use these Canadair CRJ900 training guides. Some of these aviation organizations are: all the legacy airlines, FAA, NASA, IATA, JAA, and all major international flag carriers. Many flight schools use these CRJ900 system training and cockpit panel study guides. RTP specializes in creating downloads which use Information Mapping™ to facilitate easy assimilation of the required knowledge. They are all immediately available at:
These interactive CRJ900 CBT (Computer Based Training) light-switch guides with hyperlinks to and from the associated Canadair CRJ900 airplane system diagrams, schematics and synoptics, provide all the necessary information for successful pilot training in a CRJ900 initial ground school, Canadair CRJ900 recurrent training, CRJ900 simulator and CRJ900 Type Ratings. Go to You Tube, www.youtube.com and type in “rtpllc” to see videos of how the downloads work.
The first CRJ900 was modified from the prototype CRJ700 by adding longer fuselage sections fore and aft. It was later converted into the prototype CRJ1000 by installing yet longer fuselage sections. In 2007, Bombardier launched the CRJ900 NextGen to replace the initial version. The new model has improved economics and a new cabin common to the CRJ700 NextGen and CRJ1000 NextGen. Some operators of the CRJ900 NextGen are configured in a two class seating configuration, with 12 first class seats and 64 coach seats.
The CRJ900 is a stretched 76-90 seat version of the CRJ700. The aircraft features two GE CF34-8C5 engines, 13,360 lbf (59.4 kN) thrust with APR, and added leading edge slats. Max GTOW is 84,500 pounds. The airplane is loosely based on the CRJ200 series with a few major improvements. The environmental packs have a target temperature instead of a hot-cold knob. The cabin has a recirculation fan which aids in cooling and heating. The engines are controlled by FADEC digital engine control instead of control cables and a fuel control unit. The cabin floor has been lowered 2 inches which gains outward visibility from the windows in the cabin as the windows become closer to eye level height. The APU is a Honeywell RE220 unit which supplies much more air to the AC packs and has higher limits for starting and altitude usage. The wingspan is longer, the tail is redesigned with more span and anhedral. In typical service the CRJ900 can cruise 8-10,000 ft higher with a slightly higher fuel burn and an average true airspeed of 450-500 knots, a significant improvement over its predecessor.
The Bombardier CRJ700, CRJ900, and CRJ1000 are regional airliners based on the Bombardier CRJ200. Following the success of the CRJ100/200 series, Bombardier produced larger variants in order to compete with larger regional aircraft. Design work on the CRJ700 by Bombardier started in 1995 and the program was officially launched in January 1997.
At the bottom of this page is a list of all the Canadair CRJ900 contents in the CRJ900 Visual Oral Switch-Light Guides™ (VOSLG).
The CRJ900 VOSLG flows in the pattern of the typical FAA (JAA) Oral Exam that follows an initial ground school and Type Rating. We only teach what is essential. We spoon feed you only the necessary stuff. We don’t explain how the CRJ900 lavatory flushes the water. CRJ900 FAA Orals usually don’t ask about Flight Attendant galley fixtures. We don’t want you to have to “unmemorize” anything, either. Every airline has their own set of CRJ900 checklist flows, policies, procedures, & memory items – we don’t teach it and wouldn’t be able to stay up with the changes.
The Canadair CRJ900 interactive downloads are created for the pilot in the cockpit, not in the classroom. We show you how to command and master the CRJ900.
The VOSLGs were created using the Information Mapping™ technical writing style. And they are in COLOR. This is so much better than black and white pilot handbooks, ground school documents, and flight school aircraft operating manuals. Many ground schools use old photocopied manuals passed down from and through several faded editions. The VOSLG greatly eases and facilitates the learning and understanding of the large volume of data and information the pilot must master… and you will Master it.
Near every A320 item is a RED TRIANGLE. There is no need to even click on an item. Just put your mouse near the RED TRIANGLE and a pop-up appears explaining why the light illuminates (in COLOR) and the switch’s function.
Many training departments use lengthy modular slides shows, some with voice-overs and recordings that cannot be silenced nor allow fast forwarding. And you cannot just go back any specific item without going through the modules and subsets of chapters. Not so in the VOSLGs: everything is about one or two clicks away. And all the data is repeated in every related place. To the LEFT of a cockpit switch panel are the pop-ups explaining those associated aircraft systems. To the RIGHT of the panel are hyperlinks to the respective diagrams and schematics. The CRJ900 System descriptions are repeated everywhere so you do not have to hunt for the information you need. Everything where you might logically think to find and want it!! Hyperlinks are everywhere & to anywhere. Everything that is related is connected: between panels, diagrams & schematics, and synoptics. All data is interlaced. No more searching for that single sentence about a critical item of knowledge. All the Information is Mapped.
The upper left corner of every sheet has a direct link to
the Table of Contents (TOC). Everything
is available at the TOC. But when in the
cockpit areas, to get to a System, just to the right of the cockpit panel, are
the associated hyperlinks to the respective diagrams and schematics. In many of the Systems we illustrate numerous
situations. We show all known
And you can go in reverse. Thus, from any diagram and schematic there are reverse links to any and all related cockpit switch panels and synoptic displays. Everything is in COLOR, too!
In fact, one Testimonial says: "I'm in the middle of my little bus Initial at US Air and the three weeks I studied with your program before I went to school made all the difference in the world.... I'm home on the breaks relaxing while my 3 other classmates are still in CLT banging their heads. Thanks for a great program!" -- C. H.

Each VOSLG© is made by an instructor pilot. We type every letter and draw every line! We do not copy and paste manufacturer’s production manuals. We tear apart the paragraphs and sentences and use Information Mapping™ to reassemble the data to you can learn it by reading it just once. Ground school and initial training, recurrent training and Type Ratings are stressful. We remove all the unnecessary pressure.
We are pilots - we know what you need. Slide rule engineers with pocket-protectors are reluctantly forced at some point in production to write down “how it works” for you, the CRJ900 pilot, who will need to fly it. They might understand a bunch of Greek symbols on their calculators and have memorized the tenth digit of π, but they make a mess of it telling you, “the switch on the panel switches on the pump and the light is on when the pump is off unless you turned the pump off, or had a switch fault, or an over temperature and/or under pressure pump condition(s) that existed at the time a transfer of power interrupted the automatic shut down of the pump through the alternate command override except on <insert some tail numbers here> when greater than -40°C and not in ground effect.” And they throw in a bunch of acronyms derived from a translation of a foreign language with a different alphabet. These mysteries you might find (maybe) in various chapters, or in front of the manual, or after the index, or anywhere, or nowhere. Now you’re confused. Suddenly, you’re half way through ground school and you were hoping to catch up on yesterday’s confusing material, and complete that reading assignment from two days ago, and complete tomorrow’s chapters…. We know the feeling. We put all the Acronyms in one easy place, and always identify them up front and first in the pop-ups.
Information Mapping™ teaches data at several level of learning simultaneously. We use literary techniques and presentation methods that facilitate understanding in the conscious and subconscious.
