Aviation accident experts are combing through the wreckage of a light plane that crashed in country Victoria, killing the pilot.

It crashed on the perimeter of Yarram airport, in the state's southeast on Wednesday.

Three experts from the Australian Transport and Safety Bureau (ATSB) arrived at the site on Thursday afternoon.

They will look at the weather conditions at the time of the accident, and talk to witnesses while examining the wreckage and collecting aircraft and pilot documentation.

The plane, a nine-year-old Jabiru j-170, was registered with Recreational Aviation Australia.

The pilot, aged in his 60s, was the sole occupant.

Investigators are to remain at the site for three days.
