There is no FAA regulation saying you cannot smoke on an aircraft. Its done in bizJets all the time. That's a common misconception. However, it is unlawful for airlines to allow smoking on their flights originating or flying within the U.S.
This applies to scheduled passenger aircraft, so it's permissible on bizjets. But there sure as hell is an FAA regulation saying you can't smoke on "an aircraft" - in fact it applies to quite a few aircraft!

The FAA regulations regarding smoking apply to all commercial flights that fly in or out of the US now. Olympic was one of the last carriers to offer smoking on flights to the US, and they lost a massive tort case because of a doctor who died on one of their flights because he was a massive asthmatic and they did not accomidate him farther from the smoking section.
