Boeing B737 Systems Study Guide and Switch Light Training Guide (Cockpit)

Purpose:

 

The purpose of this Aviation Information Services (AIS) LLC website is to help Boeing B737 pilots connect to the Red Triangle Productions (RTP) LLC company web site to enable the pilot to find the B737 training materials and study guides.  These superlative B737 CBT digital pilot handbooks are trademarked as Visual Oral Switch-Light Guides (VOSLG).  Every pilot assigned to fly the B737 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 Boeing B737 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 B737 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 B737 CBT (Computer Based Training) light-switch guides with hyperlinks to and from the associated Boeing B737 airplane system diagrams, schematics and synoptics, provide all the necessary information for successful pilot training in a B737 initial ground school, Boeing B737 recurrent training, B737 simulator and B737 Type Ratings.  Go to You Tube, www.youtube.com and type in “rtpllc” to see videos of how the downloads work.

 

Easily learn your B737 Aircraft with Confidence!

The Boeing 737 is a midsize, short- to medium-range, twin-engine narrow-body jet airliner.  Originally developed as a shorter, lower-cost twin-engine airliner, the 737 has developed into a family of nine passenger models with a capacity of 85 to 215 passengers.  The 737 is Boeing's only narrow-body airliner in production.  In the 1980s, Boeing launched the -300, -400, and -500 models, subsequently referred to as the Boeing 737 Classic series.  Now Boeing continues production building the -600, -700, -800, and -900ER variations.  The 737 series is the best-selling jet airliner in the history of aviation.  The 737 has been continuously manufactured by Boeing since 1967 with 7,010 aircraft delivered and 2,365 orders yet to be filled.  The 737NG encompasses the -600, -700, -800, and -900, and is to date the most significant upgrade of the airframe.  The performance of the 737NG is, in essence, that of a new aircraft, but important commonality is retained from previous 737 models.  The wing was redesigned with a new airfoil section, greater chord, increased wing span by 16 ft (4.9 m) and area by 25%, which increased total fuel capacity by 30%.  New, quieter, more fuel-efficient CFM56-7B engines were used.  The wing, engine, and fuel capacity improvements combined increase the 737's range by 900 nautical miles to over 3,000 nautical miles (5,600 km), now are permitting transcontinental service.  With the increased fuel capacity, higher maximum takeoff weight (MTOW) specifications are offered.  The 737NG included redesigned vertical stabilizers, and winglets were available on most models.  The flight deck was upgraded with modern avionics and passenger cabin improvements.  Engines on the 737 Classic series (300, 400, 500) and Next-Generation series (600, 700, 800, 900) do not have circular inlets like most aircraft.  The 737 Classic series featured CFM56 turbofan engines, which yielded significant gains in fuel economy and a reduction in noise over the JT8D engines used on the -100 and -200, but also posed an engineering challenge given the low ground clearance of the 737.  Boeing and engine supplier CFMI solved the problem by placing the engine ahead of (rather than below) the wing, and by moving engine accessories to the sides (rather than the bottom) of the engine pod, giving the 737 a distinctive non-circular air intake.  For the 737 Next Generation, a six-screen LCD glass cockpit with modern avionics was implemented while retaining crew commonality with previous generation 737.

At the bottom of this page is a list of all the Boeing B737 contents in the B737 Visual Oral Switch-Light Guides™ (VOSLG).

 

“If you can move a mouse, you will Master your Boeing B737!”

 

The B737 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 B737 lavatory flushes the water.  B737 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 B737 checklist flows, policies, procedures, & memory items – we don’t teach it and wouldn’t be able to stay up with the changes. 

 

The Boeing B737 - Presented from the Pilot’s Perspective!!

 

The Boeing B737 interactive downloads are created for the pilot in the cockpit, not in the classroom.  We show you how to command and master the B737. 

 

Learn the B737 like you will fly it.

 

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. 

 

Why is the company called Red Triangle Productions???

 

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.

 

Hyperlinked and interconnected – Presented as you will need to Use the B737!!

 

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 B737 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.

 

Every B737 pilot must have useful Mental Maps of the Systems.

 

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 Normal, Abnormal, Non-normal and Emergency configurations in all the critical Systems such as Air Conditioning & Pressurization, Brakes, Electrical, Hydraulics, Flight Controls, Fuel, etc.  A picture is worth a thousand words.

 

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!

 

Prepare early!  Command the material!  Be Relaxed & Confident!

 

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.

Eliminate Stress – Know that You will Succeed!!


Each VOSLG© is made by an Boeing 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 know what you Need – and NO computer skills are necessary!!

 

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 B737 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,

B737 Differences, Options, Free Extras!!

 

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 B737 tips, tricks or techniques, B737 grounds school or B737 simulator training notes, or “there I was” stories, etc., then share them with us!  We have are always ready to pass on helpful B737 information!

 

Maintain Aircraft Control – and over your career knowledge:  It is only a Mouse Click away!

 

We made these B737 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.
