Yes you can, you will have to install Steam on to the new drive then reinstall FSX-SE.

This is the way I did it.

The following instructions are a simple way to move your Steam installation along with your games:


Exit the Steam client application.
Browse to the Steam installation folder for the Steam installation you would like to move (C:\Program Files\Steam by default).
Delete all of the files and folders except the SteamApps folder and Steam.exe
Cut and paste the whole Steam folder to the new location, for example: D:\Games\Steam\
Launch Steam and log into your account.

Steam will briefly update and then you will be logged into your account. For installed games, verify your game cache files (https://support.steampowered.com/kb_article.php?ref=2037-QEUH-3335) and you will be ready to play. All future game content will be downloaded to the new folder (D:\Games\Steam\SteamApps\ in this example)
