The Auster D.4 was a two-seat British light aircraft, a development of the Auster Arrow with a horizontally opposed Lycoming engine. Six were built by Auster Aircraft at their Rearsby, Leicestershire, factory. The other examples were built under licence in Portugal by the Oficinas Gerais de Matereal Aeronautico OGMA.
