The purpose of this Aviation Information Services (AIS) LLC website is to help Embraer ERJ 145 & ERJ 170 & ERJ 190 pilots connect to the Red Triangle Productions (RTP) LLC company web site to enable the pilot to find the ERJ 145 & ERJ 170 & ERJ 190 training materials and study guides. These superlative ERJ 145 & ERJ 170 & ERJ 190 CBT digital pilot handbooks are trademarked as Visual Oral Switch-Light Guides (VOSLG). Every pilot assigned to fly the ERJ 145 & ERJ 170 & ERJ 190 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 Embraer ERJ 145 & ERJ 170 & ERJ 190 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 ERJ 145 & ERJ 170 & ERJ 190 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 Embraer CBT (Computer Based Training) light-switch guides with hyperlinks to and from the associated Embraer ERJ Embraer airplane system diagrams, schematics and synoptics, provide all the necessary information for successful pilot training in an Embraer initial ground school, Embraer recurrent training, Embraer simulator and Embraer Type Ratings. Go to You Tube, www.youtube.com and type in “rtpllc” to see videos of how the downloads work.
Seeking a domestic aircraft manufacturer, the Brazilian government made several investments in this area during the 1940s and '50s, but it was not until 1969 that Empresa Brasileira de Aeronáutica (Embraer) was created as a government-owned corporation. In 1974 the company started to produce Piper Aircraft light planes under license. Between 1974 and 2000 nearly 2500 Pipers were produced by Embraer.
Born from a Brazilian government plan and having been state-run from the beginning, Embraer began a privatization process alongside many other state-controlled companies. This privatization effort saw Embraer sold on December 7, 1994, and helped it avoid a looming bankruptcy. The company continued to win government contracts. The Brazilian government retains interest and veto power.
In the mid-1990s the company pursued a product line more focused on small commercial planes than the military aircraft that had prior made up the majority of its manufacturing. Larger regional airliners with 70-110 seats and smaller business jets soon followed. Today the company makes for both defense and commerce. Commercial: Embraer EMB 110 Bandeirante, Embraer EMB 120 Brasilia, Embraer/FMA CBA 123 Vector, Embraer ERJ 135 (37 passengers), Embraer ERJ 140 (44 passengers), Embraer ERJ 145 (50 passengers), Embraer 170 (80 passengers), Embraer 175 (88 passengers), Embraer 190 (110 passengers), Embraer 195 (122 passengers), Military: Embraer EMB 111 Bandeirulha, a special version designed for maritime patrol, used by the Brazilian Air Force, Embraer EMB 312 Tucano, Embraer EMB 314 Super Tucano, AMX International AMX, Embraer R-99, Embraer 145 AEW&C, Embraer 145 RS/AGS, Embraer P-99, Embraer KC-390, Corporate: Embraer Phenom 100, Embraer Phenom 300, Embraer Legacy 450, Embraer Legacy 500, Embraer Legacy 600, Embraer Legacy 650, Embraer Lineage 1000.
In October 2010, Embraer suggested plans to develop very-long-range business jets, entering a sector currently dominated by Gulfstream, Bombardier, and Dassault. In May 2011, Embraer announced that it was considering building a larger airliner than the E-jets, with five-abreast seating.
The ERJ 145 & ERJ 170 & ERJ 190 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 ERJ 145 & ERJ 170 & ERJ 190 lavatory flushes the water. ERJ 145 & ERJ 170 & ERJ 190 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 ERJ 145 & ERJ 170 & ERJ 190 checklist flows, policies, procedures, & memory items – we don’t teach it and wouldn’t be able to stay up with the changes.
The Embraer interactive downloads are created for the pilot in the cockpit, not in the classroom. We show you how to command and master the ERJ!
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 cockpit 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 ERJ 145 & ERJ 170 & ERJ 190 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.

Books, manuals and CD/DVDs are obsolete with the next revision! Our Copies are available anytime on request. If your PC crashes, or you get a new laptop, you get FREE ERJ COPIES.
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 ERJ 145 & ERJ 170 & ERJ 190 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.
Detail, Clarity, Concise,
See our FREE DEMOS at www.redtriangle.com.
Speaking of Differences – we clearly point out all DIFFERENCES so you clearly see and understand them – just like NOTES, CAUTIONS and WARNINGS! We also include as many of the airline Options for the aircraft as we can learn about. The website has many Free Extras sent to us by pilots, and we are always looking to add more. If you have any ERJ tips, tricks or techniques, Embraer grounds school or simulator training notes, or “there I was” stories, etc., then share them with us! We have are always ready to pass on helpful ERJ information!
We made these ERJ Visual Oral Switch-Light Guides™ to operate on any computer. No special memory, or speeds, or processor, or any other attributes are required by your PC or laptop. Even the computers of the last Century with Windows 3.1 OS and Microsoft Office 1995 can handle them. MAC users can use Apple Office 11, or Parallels, or other Windows emulating programs.
