This position is a engineering position not an aircraft mechanic. I currently live in the D.C. area and my salary is close to your Texas friends around 85k. Please know that I love my current job and my current living standard and financial situation is great.

My biggest concern is my home. I will not be able to sell it and will put it up for rent. I need to be financially stable in the event that I can not rent the home and will have to pay for my home in the U.S. and maintain a good living in Dubai.


P.S. I love calculus, differential equations, and physics
I will also say that the company I work for is worldwide and could have selected someone local or in Europe. I believe there is a good reason they selected me and I'm hoping I can use that in my favor. I hope that helps.

Listen to jynx advice and don't come here unless you are going to be paid much, much more than what you are earning back home, especially as you say you currently have a nice life and lifestyle!! the fact that you have to pay your mortgage back home is also one thing to consider, i am assuming it will take a good chunk of your money. The move is hard on some people, and being away from home might be difficult for your wife when your baby is born as she won't have a support system around her

i doubt it if you can have a good apartment on your own for 1k if you intend to live in Dubai... There are good studio flats somewhere in Silicon Oasis that could range to 23-28k per year...

Again thanks for all the great info!

Hi, I doubt it if you can find a good apartment on your own for 1k in Dubai....

If you get a relocation bonus should that be expected to cover the flight over to Dubai? Tjere is nothing else specific about the initial flight there in my DH's contract.
