Pilot flying is not night current.
Passenger/non-flying pilot is night current.
In the absense of any training or safety pilot scenario, Is this a legal flight?
Join AOPA with legal services. Then pose the question to the AOPA legal section. Cheaper than consulting an attorney. Also, monthly magazines, good reads, is a pretty nice benefit.

JohnB, Curious because it appears that by that interpretation we have created a crew member were one doesnt exist by certification or regulation. In the case of a PIC or SIC their duty stations are defined. Likewise in the case of a flight instructor. However for an "acting pilot in command", that isnt part of a two pilot crew as required by certification or regulation (part 135, safety pilot, or flight instruction) there is no defined duty station. Is there a reg preventing them from being in the back seats?

"Pilot B does not need to manipulate the controls to act as pilot in command" - It would seem that an "acting PIC" would be unable to perform his duty of taking immediate action in an inflight emergency as required under 91.3.
