The yet-to-be-identified pilot of the aircraft died at the scene while the passenger was airlifted to hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

It’s understood the two people flying the gyrocopter, over Goulburn Weir before encountering trouble and crashing.

A report will be prepared for the coroner.
