is there a way i can use a global map to see the airport around the x plane world instead of typing the airport i want or do i just have to use google maps or something like that?

Back in the good old days, we used to be able to select any location on a 3-D Globe. I really like it because I was able to explore many random location very quickly. Now I only ever go to a few airports that I know the name of. Austin, bring back the globe earth.

There is no option like that in the simulator itself. A volunteer has made this map based on Gateway airports.

If you do not have a specific destination or starting point in mind, you can always try the special start "get me lost" for a random start.
