180 Sqn cadets have the opportunity to participate in many trips and events throughout the year, from day excursions, to weekend competitions and trips, and to the week-long March Break trip. Some trips involve a selection process if over-subscribed, others are geared towards only certain levels or teams, and some are first-come/first-serve.

March Break Trip
The week-long March Break trips normally take 180 Sqn to the eastern United States or Canada, where cadets stay on, and tour military facilities. As well, the Sqn will normally tour a major city and visit museums and other attractions.

The cost for this trip ranges from $350-400.00, and a coach-load of cadets are selected on the basis of attendance and performance in the Sqn.
