If using the scholarship toward the private certificate, a solo endorsement must have been accomplished.
- One attendance letter from a Chapter officer confirming the applicant has attended at least two Chapter meetings within the past 12 months.
- One of the recommendation letters must be from a flight instructor or someone with whom you have flown.
