I suggest you report a bug. If the bug and security fixes are significant then the package will be updated sooner rather than later

Ubuntu is not a rolling release distribution and packages can be left in favor of ones with real issues.

You may find a PPA here on Launchpad.net
https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+ppas?name_filter=flightGear

Remember to filter PPAs for your release name. Not all PPAs support all releases of Ubuntu and PPAs come with the usual caveats of a PPA.

Additionally you have to be aware that Ubuntu is copying packages form Debian, and Debian also has only version 2020.3.5
First step to get a higher version into Ubuntu is creating a bug reort for Debian that they upgrade their package.

Have you seen the PPA https://launchpad.net/~saiarcot895/+archive/ubuntu/flightgear-edge ?
That already has version 2020.4.0
