You are o/c your pc. Is it properly stress-tested? Get Prime95 and Everest and check for memory issues. Run the Prime test on all cores for AT LEAST 6 hours.

Thansk for the reply, but trust me thats not the reason, I can assure you this system is stable. Its something else causing this crash, does anyone know anything about api.dll?

Usually api.dll, simconnect.dll any .dll crash in FSX is related to corrupt scenery. I have had some issues with FSX crashing and I've had every .dll file at one time or another as the culprit.I only started to receive these errors after really pushing the sliders to the right. I beleive there are some instances where FSX and the scenery cannot stay in synch with each other resulting in the crash.I have relaxed some of my scenery settings and the issue has seemingly disappeared. The relaxed settings being terrain texture resolution, scenery complexity and autogen.

Thanks for the reply. My settings arent very far right, scenery is only at dense, and resolutions arent that high, I might try a vista re-install. If it is what you said about scenery keeping in sync, thats pretty terrible, that after 2 years ms still cant produce a product that allows you to run it on high settings without crashing. Geeze its bad enough that fsx preforms so much worse than even crysis, but now it crashes too.
