I agree that you should not be alarmed by the air sounds.
I would also add that it's really not a good idea to sit in your yak on dry land, certainly do not make a habit of it. On the water, the weight is supported by the entire bottom surface of the yak. On dry land, it's only supported by the few places touching the ground. That forces the boat to deform particularly with a larger person doing the sitting.
