Bombardier CRJ900 Cockpit - Flight Deck
When looking inside the Bombardier CRJ900 Cockpit you will notice that there are few changes in comparison to it's predecessors. The Bombardier CRJ900 Cockpit is very similar to the other CRJ series flight decks. Bombardier wanted to keep all aircraft in the CRJ series very similar, so they continued this pattern with the CRJ900 cockpit. The main focus in the Bombardier CRJ900 Flight Deck is the avionics system. The CRJ900 flight deck has the Rockwell Collins Pro Line 4 avionics suite, the same avionics suite that is on all CRJ series aircraft. This system was developed in the 1990s and has been upgraded with some new features to meet some new standards. There are 6 CRT style displays in the Bombardier CRJ900 cockpit that show various avionics information. There are 4 primary flight displays and 2 multifunction displays located in the middle. Most CRJ900 cockpits have two Collins Flight Management System computers (FMS or FMC) located in the middle console of the aircraft. These are specificity the Collins FMS-4200 units.
The CRJ900 flight deck has an overhead panel that has switches and controls for the lights, APU and other components of the aircraft. On the Captain side of the cockpit is a tiller for steering (turning) the front landing gear.
