Q&A with Hayward ATC

December 2, 2023 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

Hayward airport presents a number of unique pilot challenges. Its proximity to the Oakland airport is only one of them. The overlying Bravo and Charlie airspace combine with some unique surface operations to catch the uninformed pilot off guard.

San Carlos Flight Center welcomes Sean Mackey, the FAA’s Air Traffic Manager for Hayward Airport, to discuss how pilots can operate safely at and around KHWD. Sean will review important local procedures to help pilots avoid pilot deviations and comply with the noise abatement procedures. As manager, he is uniquely positioned to answer all of our pilot questions about Hayward operations.

If you are looking to get a deeper understanding of Hayward Airport operations or you just have a burning question to ask an FAA control tower manager, mark your calendar to attend this session. This is likely going to be a popular seminar so come early to get a good seat.


Sean Mackey is the FAA’s Air Traffic Manager for Hayward Executive airport. Sean was previously based at Buchanan Field Airport (CCR) and has the unique perspective of also being a Private pilot with tailwheel experience and an Instrument rating.
