The Beagle A.113 Husky (originally, the Auster D.5) was a three-seat British light aircraft built in the 1960s, a development of the Auster Alpha. It first flew as an Auster design in January 1960, but that company was taken over by Beagle Aircraft in September. It was available with a choice of two engines, a 160 hp Lycoming O-320 or 180 hp Lycoming O-360. Around 170 examples were built by Oficinas de Gereais Matereal Aeronautico in Portugal from 1961 onwards, and the Portuguese Air Museum preserves two of these; one in flying condition.
