JET 1 COLLEGE CUP matches are a simplified version of the JET 1 CUP Tournament. Fighter jets are in the air, paired with an esports player on the ground. Once a jet is locked onto an opponent, the esports player pulls the trigger on the ground at *just* the right moment, hoping to register a successful hit and score points.
In JET 1 COLLEGE CUP matches, college students are in the cockpit with an experienced pilot. The pilot takes care of most of the flying - but the student takes the controls to line up each shot. Students can also opt to participate on the ground, pulling the trigger to score successful hits.

DO I NEED TO BE A PILOT TO PARTICIPATE IN THE JET 1 COLLEGE CUP?
No. An experienced pilot will execute any and all critical flight maneuvers.
The mission of the Jet 1 Cup is to empower the next generation by opening the world of aviation to them. You can participate as a pilot, or as an esports player taking the shots.
HOW DO I SCORE POINTS IN THE JET 1 COLLEGE CUP?
The pilot gets the fighter jet to stable flight at a safe altitude. They then hand over control to the college student, who tries to line up a shot on a competing fighter jet. Once the shot is lined up, an esports player on the ground pulls the trigger. If it’s a successful hit, the team scores points.
