It is believed the plane suffered engine failure when coming down to land in a field in Clonbullogue shortly before 3pm this afternoon.
No passengers were on board at the time.
It is understood the pilot has gotten out of the aircraft and is being treated in hospital for shock.
A team from the Air Accident Investigation Unit is on its way to the scene.
Two sets of tandem parachute jumpers were also on board the Cessna 206 when it experienced a loss of power over the airfield at Clonbullogue.
It is understood the pilot ordered the four parachute jumpers out of the plane before he attempted to carry out a forced landing.
He brought the plane down in a ploughed field, close to the landing strip, where it flipped over.
The pilot was taken to hospital where he was treated for shock.
Officials from the Department of Transport's Air Accident Unit have begun an investigation into the incident."
Glad to hear that everyone is okay.
