HMMH addresses environmental issues at airports; since our founding in 1981, HMMH has delivered expert assistance to more than 200 airports worldwide. The focus of our Aviation Environmental Services Group is to analyze, evaluate, and find solutions for airport environmental issues. We prepare noise and air quality studies, develop sustainability plans, evaluate and develop mitigation plans for environmental impacts, contribute to environmental documentation, engage the public, and ensure regulatory compliance. Many of our consultants have backgrounds in aerospace/aviation, flight procedures, physics, math, engineering, environmental sciences, or other technical fields.

  • Actively communicate with project team members and clients to contribute toward delivering high-quality technical documentation
  • Assist clients in compiling aircraft operations, correspondence, and land use data
  • Assist clients with responding to public inquiries regarding aviation noise issues by phone, in-person meetings, and public meetings

Specific assignments may include analyzing aircraft flight track databases and other aviation or environmental data sources to create inputs for modeling of environmental effects around airports and affected communities, statistical data analysis, contributing to the development of software tools, drafting environmental reports and NEPA documentation, and acoustical testing for sound insulation projects for example.

Minimum Requirements:
  • BA, BS, or MS in a technical field (aerospace/aviation, physics, math, engineering, environmental sciences, or other technical fields)
  • 1-5 years of experience in a similar field
  • Strong writing skills and ability to communicate technical information to non-technical audiences
  • Demonstrated interpersonal and collaborative communication skills
