Is it an insurance company that insists on it? Is it a marketing choice by the company to make potential customers feel better. ,O, is it just that does Uncle Joe thinks it's a good idea?

Without knowing the source of the requirement, it's hard to answer your question.
I am not 100% sure what reg this it is based off, but you bring up a good point and I guess it would just depend on the situation. What i do know is that the plane is used by a night cargo outfit.

In retrospect, I guess the question should be, "How would potential future employers look at the time?"

Thanks to both of y'all for your replies.
