Thoughts on safety of Paratech P81 (2009) wing?

Hi all,

I'm a beginner, in the process of doing PPG training and wanted to get everyone's thoughts on the safety of the mentioned wing for someone out after training.

I have managed to acquire a Paratech P81 (L) wing with a Parajet paramotor I bought. The wing is from 2009 and EN-C / LTF-2 rated. My instructor hasn't had any contact with Paratech, so any opinions for this wing would be hugely appreciated. Now I roughly know how the ratings work and that it's not suitable for training, but if I was cautiously taught to fly on this wing by my instructor, would it be safe to start flying on by myself after all training is completed?

Many thanks,

No, it would not be safe. That doesn't mean you will crash, but if you would get in a situation where you need to recover, you most likely won't recognise what you must do. No opinion on the specific wing, but the classification is there for a reason. In this case rated C on asymmetric front collapse behavior.

And you should read this link http://www.dhv.de/db1/source/technictestreport2.php?item=-1175&lang=en

Not the one you posted, this is for size L, not XS. Big diffrence.
