DH keeps his resume up on some pilot job website and will get requests for interviews every now and then but the jobs are usually crappy and nothing he's interested in. He just got an offer to interview for a job in Beijing and the guy seems serious about hiring DH (for example, DH questioned vacay time and the guy has already raised it from the original email).
Anyway, DH has said over and over that he wants his next move to not be a lateral one, but rather a better aircraft type, unless it was back to the States for a decent amount of money. This would be the same aircraft type and a pretty hefty pay increase, but I DO NOT want to move to Beijing. I'll admit it, I'm a wimp when it comes to being outside my comfort zone. We're lucky that Dubai is so easy. And to be honest, we're not hurting for money with the job here and have been saving for when we do move back to the States (since going to a commercial airline will be a crazy pay cut that I don't even want to think about right now) so we don't need this pay increase though it'd be nice and get us back to the States quicker.
If we stay in Dubai, I'm not in any hurry to get back to the States. I don't want to live somewhere that has me constantly longing for the US. Also, we have two cats, one of which gets super stressed easily (enough to make me worry how we'll get him back to the States without him dying from shock) and I don't want to deal with trying to get them to China. We're so settled here and the thought of leaving here for anywhere besides the US makes me want to cry. Blaahhh.
So anyway, I don't even know the point of this post. I wanted to know everything about living in Beijing but now I'm just thinking what's the point since I don't want to move nor is there a reason that we have to. (I asked DH how serious he was about this on a scale of 1-10 and he said 6.)
ETA: Just found out management company is in Beijing but aircraft would be based in Hong Kong.
