eckhard is right afaik; it's just shorthand for the aircraft descriptive section of the manual (qv PRO for PROcedures, PER for PERformance, SPO for SPecial Operations etc etc)

Though it begs the question (beyond idle curiosity): why does it matter?

Does the FCOM not have a list of abbreviations at the begining? The old A300 one did.
