"Until now, the only significant omission from Top Cub's enviable list of competencies was night flight," said Jim Richmond, CubCrafters' CEO. "Now that restriction is gone and new owners can enjoy extended operating hours."
A number of changes were made to the Top Cub cabin for Night VFR Certification including new backlit placards, instrument illumination, fuel sight gauge lighting, and glare shields are provided. In addition, several interior surfaces are now finished in non-reflective black and modern LED taxi and landing lights have replaced incandescent fixtures. Richmond also notes, "The FAA has raised the bar for Night VFR over the years. Our new certification meets the latest and most rigorous standards set by the FAA with regard to human factors making the Top Cub more convenient and safe for true night operations." All new Top Cubs will include the complete Night VFR Lighting Package as standard equipment. "Night VFR Certification will benefit all new Top Cub owners," Richmond said, "but particularly those pilots based in northern latitudes where daylight hours are reduced much of the year.

CubCrafters President Jim Richmond said the company has been careful with how they manage growth, stating that overwhelming demand for the Carbon Cub SS tempted CubCrafters to add space and people quickly but they instead increased production incrementally.
Richmond added that when new orders continued to outpace capacity and the company's delivery backlog continued to grow, it was at that point they decided to add the new weld and machine shop.

CUBCRAFTERS was founded in 1980 by current president, aircraft designer and pilot Jim Richmond. An A&P, Jim visited Alaska - bush pilot heaven - that year, gathering as much information as he could about Super Cub modifications and applications. When he returned to Washington State, he decided to get into Super Cub rebuilding full time. He sold his home insulation business and rebuilt five L-21's (Italian versions of the Super Cub.) During this time Jim also started the "Super Cub Newsletter", constantly gathering information on modifications and STC's, and refining the rebuilding process.
