Two men who disappeared in a light aircraft in remote South Australia have been found alive and well.

The aircraft was reported missing over the north of the state in the Lake Eyre region on Tuesday night.

The Tecnam Eaglet reportedly left the airstrip at Marree, 670 kilometres north of Adelaide, about 5:30pm for a two-hour scenic flight.

It was expected to land in the evening back at Marree but failed to arrive.

On Wednesday morning, SA Police tweeted that the plane had been found.

At least seven planes had been expected to take part in a large-scale search for the aircraft.

The good result comes just months after a light plane crash in Victoria that killed a 19-year-old university student who was on a solo training flight.
