Someone suggested I apply there. Do they hire foreigners?

I have heard they did at one point. They have supposedly hired Americans with an FAA license and then applied for a one/two year validation of the FAA license contingent upon acquiring an EASA license. But according to the following website they no longer are hiring non-EU/EEA/CH citizens-

* Must hold valid EU Passport / Citizenship.
* Must have legal right to live and work in Europe.
* Must hold JAA/EASA Pilot Licence and Medical.

Their own website does not offer much information either:

They do hire non-Icelandic pilots type rated in the aircraft operated. They will validate your FAA certificate for 1 year, then you must have a EASA ATPL. They hire thru their own Crew Leasing Company, Airborne.
