I fly jets commercially and own many of justplanes DVD's. My wife knows it's always a good gift but she also knows to ask for my 'top 3' at the time. I'm fussy when it comes to likes -and dislikes and she knows that. I know it sort of spoils the surprise effect but rather that than waste money on something I just don't like and watch. And yes, I only watch them once or twice max.
Justplanes has started to raise their game to match the competition from the smaller compnanies around. Before it was indeed a lot of the same.
Why not consider something totally different? Give him a ride in a 'real' simulator. Sounds expensive BUT search for fixed base sims and you might get the price down as they are just about as real but just not the expensive to run actual full motion training beasts. Several companies operate them for the public to enjoy. (142 euro's for 30min in a full motion B738 in Holland or here in the UK: Fixed Base Prices | Jet Simulation
