I think you answered the question yourself 404.

By employing expats as cadets, Cathay can claim they have no "skills, knowledge or experience not readily available in Hong Kong."

So they slap a cadet label on an experienced pilot, they shorten the course to save even more money, and voila. Our current situation.

At least that is my understanding of the process.
