Tke your pick click here My favourite are the Logitech sticks.

If you friend would prefer a gamepad click here the Saitek ones are pretty good.

Depending how much you want to pay, for Flight Simming, go for one of the following:-

Saitek X 52 or CH Flightsim Yoke

Neither are the cheapest available, but without doubt the best. I have been an avid Flight simmer since FS7 (2000) and personaly use the Yoke. CH also do a set of Pedals for the rudder and a Throttle Quadrant for flying multi engined aircraft. If your friend is serious about the hobby, the expense will be most worthwhile.
