Moran joins airport staff as Noise Analyst
Submitted By Hayward Executive Airport
Sean Moran has joined the airport staff in the position of Noise Analyst. His first day on the job was July 15, 2013. Sean holds a Bachelor's degree in Aviation Administration from California State University, Los Angeles. Before joining the Hayward Executive Airport staff, Sean worked with the Ventura County Department of Airports, most recently as an airport operations officer with responsibility for daily inspections, airfield security, accident response and coordination of airfield activities.
Moran has significant experience in noise management at Van Nuys Airport, one of the busiest general aviation airports in the United States. During his tenure at VNY he was responsible for technical noise monitoring as well as investigating noise complaints from the surrounding community. Van Nuys utilizes the Bruel & Kjaer Airport Noise and Monitoring System (ANOMS) that is also in place at Hayward.
Former Noise Analyst Courtney Meredith returned to the Bay Area for a week in July to provide Sean with training in local procedures. During her tenure at Hayward Courtney focused on creating a working relation-ship with members of the community, and she emphasized the importance of follow-up and community outreach in her training with Sean.
"I'm looking forward to working with members of the local community to continue the recent downward trend in noise complaints," says Sean. "My immediate family is also in the Bay Area, so it's nice to come home."
