There are several advantages to hiring an external EFB Administrator under the ORO.GEN.205 or an external EFB consultant to help with the daily operations or time-consuming projects.
Specialized Expertise: An external EFB Administrator is typically a professional who is specialized in EFB administration, whereas an in-house EFB admin may not have the same level of expertise and/or time. This means that an external EFB admin can provide a higher level of service and ensure compliance with regulations.
Cost-effectiveness: Hiring an external EFB administrator can be more cost-effective than having an in-house EFB admin, especially if the company does not have a large fleet of aircraft. The external EFB admin can be hired on a part-time or as-needed basis, which can save money on salaries, benefits, and other expenses associated with hiring a full-time employee.
Reduced Workload: An in-house EFB admin who is also a full-time pilot may have a heavy workload, which can lead to errors and oversights. By hiring an external EFB administrator, the workload can be reduced, and the pilot can focus on their primary duties.
Independent Oversight: An external EFB administrator can provide independent oversight of the EFB program, which can ensure that it is being run in compliance with regulations and best practices. This can be especially important in situations where there may be conflicts of interest or other issues that could compromise the integrity of the EFB program.
Overall, hiring an external EFB administrator can provide several benefits, including specialized expertise, cost-effectiveness, reduced workload, and independent oversight.
However, the decision to hire an external EFB admin should be based on the specific needs of the company and the resources available.
