Does anyone know if "Flying Dragon" is a variety of Poncirus trifoliata or is it a variety of something else?
As others have noted - yes it is Poncirus trifoliata.  It grows in a twisted/distorted manor, which provides dwarfing when used as rootstock.

How bitter/ tart are the fruits? Can you make anything half pleasant out of the fruits? Marmalade?
I am not sure, but Edible Landscaping used to sell complex hybrids of Poncirus and Citrus, that were [supposedly] less cold hardy, but more edible.
