Looking for a city where people don't have an issue with Muslim wearing Hijab ( no frequent comments / looks)

and also to be affordable , specially in Rental and utility bills

Also to have a good job market in general and to have a presence of some commercial aerospace
industry

Have you tried Tulsa? We have a large maintenance base here in Tulsa and a small Muslim community here. I haven't noticed people making negative comments about the Hijab. But, it is OK so we do have a share of ignorant rednecks so you may want to stay within Tulsa city limits.

Tulsa sounds great in affordability , don't know about Job market and also doubt the weather is reasonable

Try the Texas cities of Dallas and Houston. Both very affordable and very diverse. I reside in a suburb of Dallas and the Muslim community is extremely active here. They work closely with our city on food drives and the adopt a street program. People don't give a second glance to hijabs or Muslims here and we welcome any good neighbor.

I would say Dearborn/Metro Detroit, but we don't have much of an aerospace industry. (Unless there's a supplier or two that I'm not aware of).

Houston and Dallas would probably fit your requirements since they have a sizable aerospace sector (although I guess it would depend on your job) and are generally muslim friendly. I would also consider looking into the Seattle and Los Angeles area as well.

The Dayton, OH area has aerospace jobs, is very affordable, and recently has had a bunch of Middle Eastern immigrants, although you may still get dirty looks in some parts of the area.
