kpd is quite right in drawing to everyone’s attention to the very unfortunate customers following the demise of Cabair first in 2011, followed by the Mark 2 variant the following year which clearly demonstrates the risk of paying large amounts up front.
70k up front to the original Cabair, followed by a further 15k for those who wanted to complete their training in a restarted company. Google has the full sorry story.

Reasonable stages payments are normal practice.

As ever due diligence and caveat emptor ~ consider taking independent advice where appropriate.
