Lots of professional track flight schools pair students up and have them fly around to build hours and practice working as a two person crew. They wear uniforms and everything. They would, of course, need to be qualified to do so, but it is a pretty common thing.

"Student" doesn't necessarily denote a lack of a private pilot certificate. But you're the know resident know-it-all who pontificates first and asks questions never, so go jump in a lake.

quick search of FAA does not show a certificate for either of those names. hmmmmmm......
Considering the length of the flight, I would like to know if they had a fuel starvation issue. Lucky they didn't flip the plane. That would have made exit somewhat more difficult. Happy to know they survived. Would love to see some followup on this incident.
