Art is performed for part of flight (5)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

stair

Here is my best explanation:

'part of flight' is the definition.

'art is performed' is the subsidiary indication.

'performed' indicates anagramming the letters.

'art'+'is'='artis'

'artis' with letters rearranged gives 'stair'.

'for' is the link.

(Other definitions for stair that I've seen before include "Rising step", "Part of a flight", "Word linking way and well", "One of a 15", "Way between floors", "A step on the way up or down", "Tread and riser", "Step in a series", "Indoor step" and "Step in house".)
