My registration renewal Is current on FAA.GOV but the new registration card has not arrived. I’ve applied for a replacement. May I fly until the replacement arrives?

No.  91.203(a)(2) clearly requires an effective registration paper "within" the aircraft.  However, you can get them to fax a temporary certificate until the replacement arrives by snail mail.  See https://www.faa.gov/licenses_certificates/aircraft_certification/aircraft_registry/replacement_aircraft_registration_certificate/.

This was very helpful, thanks.  The only problem I encountered was that there was no response on the fax number or even at an alternative fax the examiner provided.  But I was able to submit the required documentation via email.  I was told to expect the temporary registration NLT tomorrow.
