Eric Trump, the president's son who has run the family business while his father is in the White House, confirmed the listing.

"We currently have three helicopters and with my father in Washington (and not even allowed to use them), we simply don't need them all," Trump wrote in an email. The aircraft are stationed in New York, Florida and Europe, and they'll probably keep two located in the US, he said.

Political 'connection'

The helicopter was used by Trump to travel to the 2016 Republican convention in Cleveland, where he was officially made the party's nominee.

According to the listing, the six-seater aircraft features African mahogany paneling, ecru/almond leather seats, with fittings, including seat belts, finished in gold.
