Great sleuth-work Radarman, the pieces start falling into place.

It appears that ACARS is part of the program FS Flight Keeper which is one of the programs used by 'cargoluxvirtual'.

I wonder if one of our specialists can come up with a more rational definition Read Umm...

Yes FS Acars used to be used and can be used for a Virtual airline PIREP system. I took a look at it once when i used to use phpnuke but did not really like it. Then again that was an older version and perhaps the newer versions are better.
