Agitation involving a part of flight (5)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

stair

Here is my best explanation:

'part of flight' is the definition.

'agitation involving a' is the subsidiary indication.

'agitation' becomes 'stir' (in the sense of a disturbance).

'involving' indicates putting letters inside.

'stir' enclosing 'a' is 'stair'.

This clue was last seen in The Telegraph

(Other definitions for stair that I've seen before include "Flight unit", "Tarsi (anag)", "Word linking way and well", "One of a flight of steps", "A step on the way up or down", "One of a 15", "One step in a series", "Step in house", "Step up or step down?" and "Step in a series".)
