I trained a student to his PPL in a "Texas Tail Dragger.
At around 2,000 ft density altitude on a summer day, this took a very long time to get airborne
and, took around 5 miles to get to circuit height.

It had to be leaned out for take off and go arounds.

While it was a fun aeroplane to fly, it was definitely not suited to high density altitude or hot days.

There are not very many of these around.
I would much prefer a Citabria or Super Decathlon.
