The purpose of this Aviation Information Services (AIS) LLC website is to help Embraer EMB 145 pilots connect to the Red Triangle Productions (RTP) LLC company web site to enable the pilot to find the EMB 145 training materials and study guides. These superlative EMB 145 CBT digital pilot handbooks are trademarked as Visual Oral Switch-Light Guides (VOSLG). Every pilot assigned to fly the EMB 145 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 EMB 145 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 EMB 145 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 EMB 145 CBT (Computer Based Training) light-switch guides with hyperlinks to and from the associated Embraer EMB 145 airplane system diagrams, schematics and synoptics, provide all the necessary information for successful pilot training in an EMB 145 initial ground school, Embraer EMB 145 recurrent training, EMB 145 simulator and EMB 145 Type Ratings. Go to You Tube, www.youtube.com and type in “rtpllc” to see videos of how the downloads work.
The Embraer EMB 145 family is a series of regional jets produced by Embraer, a Brazilian aerospace company. Family members include the EMB 135 (37 passengers), EMB 140 (44 passengers), and EMB 145 (50 passengers). The EMB 145 is the largest of the group. Each jet in the series is powered by two turbofan engines. The EMB 145 was launched at the Paris Air Show in 1989 as a stretched and turbofan-powered modification of the EMB 120 Brasilia. This design incorporated straight wing (with winglets), rear fuselage-mounted engines, range of 2500 km, and 75% parts commonality with the EMB 120. By 1990, Embraer engineers found that results from wind-tunnel testing were less than satisfactory, and began considering a significantly different design from the EMB 120. The proposed modified design included a slightly (22.3°) swept wing with winglets, as well as engines mounted in under-wing nacelles. This second design showed markedly better aerodynamic performance, but the combination of swept wings and wing-mounted engines required an unusually high (and therefore heavy) undercarriage. The design evolved until finishing in late 1991. Seating remained at three a abreast configuration (2 and 1). The production design includes rear fuselage-mounted engines, swept wings without winglets, a T-tail configuration, and a range of 2500 km. Embraer has delivered 892 units of all variation through 2006, with a final production run in 2016 resulting in a total of just under 1000 aircraft.
At the bottom of this page is a list of all the Embraer EMB 145 contents in the EMB 145 Visual Oral Switch-Light Guides™ (VOSLG.
The EMB 145 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 EMB 145 lavatory flushes the water. EMB 145 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 EMB 145 checklist flows, policies, procedures, & memory items – we don’t teach it and wouldn’t be able to stay up with the changes.
The Embraer EMB 145 interactive downloads are created for the pilot in the cockpit, not in the classroom. We show you how to command and master the EMB 145.
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 EMB 145 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 EMB 145 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.
