N401JF departed the NASS facility in Titusville this morning and at the time of writing was about midway across Georgia. The aircraft had arrived in Florida back on 18-Nov-2014, and was test-flown following modifications on 25-Feb-2015.

It is expected that N401JF will make a mid-Atlantic crossing via the Azores on its delivery flight to the United Arab Emirates. The aircraft can be seen below with its previous registration C-GUVA prior to leaving Victoria, BC.
