RJ.03 IBIS known completions

According to Jean Claude's website, some 42 projects are confirmed to be under construction. Those are the ones that report back to JC.
The table below lists completed RJ.03 IBIS aircraft that I know of.
Each of these homebuilt airplanes were built, registered, inspected and test-flown or about to make

their first flight. If you know of another completed RJ.03 IBIS that has made its maiden flight, please let me know so that I can add this information.
