Try this or contact them as they ask.
I have this issue as well and from what I've been able to find out after some research is it's likely due to your AMD graphics cards or the Adrenaline 2020 software that comes with it. There are a couple of possible fixes to try. First try disabling Radeon Enhanced Sync in the Adrenaline software's graphics settings. If that doesn't work than your only other options are to either play in windowed mode or enabling the Direct X 10 Preview option in settings.
The first option didn't work for me but has for others. The later two options did work for me. I don't care for playing in windowed mode often personally cause it distracts from the immersion to much but there is software you can download for free https://winaero.com/ that allows you to shrink down the size of the Windows title bar at the top of the screen so it's not so distracting. Or if you prefer the Direct X 10 method, there's software called Steve's DX10 Fixer https://sites.fastspring.com/stevesfsxanalysis/ which fixes many of the issues related to running FSX in DX10 mode. It only cost's $11.99 so it's well worth it. This is what I used to allow me to play FSX in DX10 mode without having so many graphics bugs.
