Actually, I don't see any tongue-in-cheek at all, I think he is dead serious (unfortunately).
I think the clan name "911 Squadron" gives a hint: I bet it was a Falcon 3.0 "clan".
I don't know how "honor" would work in a flight sim. "Landing gear down = peace" perhaps? He seems pretty upset about being attacked from behind, so maybe "Squadron 911" only made head-on passes and never attacked from six o'clock. Hard to be a good fighter pilot that way.
