Lancashire Fire and Rescue Service sent three crews to a field close to the A59.
A drone crew was also sent out to establish where the light aircraft had come down.
A fire service spokesman said: “We believe the aircraft was carrying the pilot and one pasenger.
“Firefighters located the aircraft and established it had landed safely in a farmers field near Mains Lane, Parbold.
“There were no injuries.”
The plane came to rest just six foot away from a fence and a sheep is understood to have been hurt by the landing.
The landing took place shortly after 1pm on Bank Holiday Monday (28 August).
