Lol yeah it does. Just repetition. We had these clear sheets you could stick over the maps and use a dry erase marker on. I would try to start with VOR’s, then do airways, then add mileages, and so on until I had everything.
I learned fixes in weird ways that most probably don’t. Like Beckley (BKW) was Burger King Whopper. Crimson is the VOR in Tuscaloosa (LDK). That was Love Da Krimson for me. I associated mileage numbers with athletes who wore those numbers.
Just different. Some people prefer one over the other. Most weird situations seem to happen on the lows. On the high sectors you’re pretty much exclusively dealing with professional pilots so it’s more cut and dry.
