The Trump campaign has been reportedly flying the Cessna Citation X business jet since January 31 after DJT Operations CX - the Trump-controlled company that owns the aircraft - failed the renew the $5 registration. The FAA requires aircraft owners to renew their registration every three years.

�The aircraft owner is currently working with the FAA�s Aircraft Registry and will reregister the aircraft before further flight,� FAA spokesperson Laura J. Brown told the New York Times.

The operation of unregistered aircraft under FAA regulations could result in civil fines up to $27,500. Criminal penalties may result in fines of up to $250,000 and three years of imprisonment, according to FAA guidelines.

Trump campaign spokesperson Hope Hicks told the Times the renewal process is �just about complete�.

Trump himself will not be grounded during the jet's hiatus, however, the business mogul still has the Boeing 757 that bears his name.(IANS)
