Angelina Jolie Banned From Flying Personal Plane: Get the Scoop

Angelina Jolie AKM-GSI

Angelina Jolie will just have to make do with a private jet—at least for the time being.

E! News has learned that the mother of six can no longer fly what appears to be her personal plane after the registration on the aircraft expired over the summer.

According to an FAA spokesperson, "FAA records show the registration on N805MX, registered to Chivan Productions, Inc. and Potter, Inc. of Los Angeles, expired June 30, 2013."

Chivan is Jolie's son Maddox's middle name and is believed to be the production company that owns the Oscar winner's plane.

"The owners attempted to reregister the aircraft, but the documents were returned for needed corrections," the FAA spokesperson added. "The owners have filed new paperwork, which the FAA is reviewing."

Angelina's rep did not immediately respond to request for comment.

Jolie, whose aircraft is reportedly valued at over $350,000, obtained her pilot's license in 2004 after her adopting Maddox.

"I learned to fly a few years ago in England," the actress told Vanity Fair in an interview in 2010. "When Maddox was one and a half, we used to go to the airfield, have lunch and watch the planes. And it dawned on me: I could fly. So I promised him I would fly by his second birthday."

"It's the only place I'm completely alone—up in the air, detached from everything," Jolie added of her love of flying, sharing that her partner Brad Pitt also obtained his pilot's license. "Brad loves the technical aspects. He loves the checks, loves all the math. I'm terrible at the math, but I love that I can just go anywhere, have that freedom."

Meanwhile, the director has also been making headlines after issuing a statement on the 1000th day of the Syrian conflict, sharing how we should have "a sense of responsibility" for the people of Syria.

"Each of the last thousand days has been a living nightmare for the Syrian people," the UNHCR Special Envoy said. "With so much of the country difficult for aid workers and journalists to access and a quarter of a million people stranded in besieged areas, the full story of those 1,000 days has yet to be told. But we do know that over 100,000 Syrians have died. At a minimum, that is equivalent to 100 people being killed each day for 1,000 days. We will look back with shame on this period, and be haunted by our collective failure to prevent this killing of innocents." 

She continued, urging everyone to get involved in any way they can:

"This shocking milestone should spur everyone involved in the Geneva peace conference in January to make it a genuine turning point in the conflict: To end the violence and ensure full humanitarian access for Syria's starving and beleaguered people. With each passing day life gets harder for the millions of Syrian refugees, half of them children. I hope people and governments around the world will feel compassion and a sense of responsibility for them, and provide the increase in aid that is desperately needed," she said before concluding. "We cannot turn back the clock for the Syrian people. But we have it in our power, as an international community, to prevent another 1,000 days of bloodshed and suffering."
