The Airspeed Consul was a postwar conversion of
surplus Oxford airframes and could carry six passengers.

I few many hours in the Consul which was owned by Airwork, and used for Instrument Rating Training, and tests, between 1947 and 1957ish. The only real p[roblem with it was that it could be difficult to start when the engines were hot. Got stuck at Southend once for a couple of hours waiting for wengines to cool down.
It filled a useful gap until more modern equipment became available.
