A light plane has been forced to make an emergency landing in Geraldton, about 400 kilometres north of Perth.

The single-engine Cessna was seen billowing smoke and losing altitude soon after taking off from the Geraldton Airport just after 6:30 pm.

The 27-year-old pilot was forced to land in a paddock.

He and his 25-year-old female passenger escaped unhurt.

The Australian Transport Safety Bureau said it was awaiting more information before deciding if it will investigate the incident.
