A young pilot has died after a gyrocopter crashed in Central Queensland while he was apparently mustering cattle.

Emergency services were called to a property in the small country town of Isisford near Longreach around 8.25am on Monday.

Police say the man in his 20 died at the scene and a media report suggested he was mustering at the time of the crash.

A man was injured in a light plane accident while mustering south of Isisford in December.

In April last year a man died in a gyrocopter accident at Bundoo Station east of Charleville.
