As I don't know the first thing about flying a bellypopper, would someone who does tell us what happens when one renews a licence? Does a test have to be done? If his lapsed licence meant that he'd not been brought up-to-date with skills and drills, then in my opinion he was reckless; but if the licence renewal would merely have been a rubber-stamp, then it clearly had no influence on the crash.
The fact that he was unlicenced has obviously added to the distress of the families of the others killed in the crash and my heart goes out to them.
