Donald Trump is selling off his personal helicopter worth more than $1m.

The one-term president has listed for sale the Sikorsky S-76B that he used extensively during his 2016 run to the White House.

Before a recent paint job the helicopter, which also features prominently on The Apprentice, used to carry Mr Trump’s name on its tail.

The helicopter, which is painted in Mr Trump’s familiar corporate colours of black and red stripes, is currently in storage in New Jersey and was first listed back in July.

It still carries its US civil registration code of N76DT but has not been flown in by Mr Trump since he entered the White House in 2017.

As president he gets to fly on Air Force One and the presidential helicopter, Marine One.

The official listing on Aero Asset and Jet Edge Partners does not give a price for the helicopter but it was valued at $875,000 back in 2016, according to the New York Times.

And the price could reach as much as $1.5m with the helicopter’s links to Mr Trump, according to autevolution.com.

Mr Trump reportedly owns three Sikorsky S-76B helicopters along with several other private jets.

The VIP set-up comes with leather seats for six passengers, floor to ceiling mahogany finishes, a fridge, drinks cabinet and a soundproofed cabin.

The helicopter is the same make and model as the one involved in the fatal crash that killed basketball legend Kobe Bryant in January 2019.

When Mr Trump leaves office in January it will also see an end to his permission to land helicopters at his Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida.

Authorities say that the perk was only approved for his time in the White House and will end on January 20 2021.
