It must be the time factor also.

An approved course produces a cadet in around 18 months - it's controlled and pilot recruitment can be planned.

The non-approved self improved route is uncontrolled, unplanned and unreliable as a means of vetting and employing pilots.

The market has changed and many of the traditional employment routes are no longer available - not for the number of pilots required.
