EXERCISE 9–15 Critique a Report; Prepare a Performance Report [LO1, LO4, LO6]

Wings Flight School offers flying lessons at a small municipal airport. The school’s owner and manager has been attempting to evaluate performance and control costs using a variance report that compares the planning budget to actual results. A recent variance report appears below:

After several months of using such variance reports, the owner has become frustrated. For example, she is quite confident that instructor wages were very tightly controlled in August, but the report shows an unfavorable  variance.

 

The planning budget was developed using the following formulas, where is the number of lessons sold:

 

Text Box: Revenue . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .	$225q Instructor wages . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .	$62q Aircraft depreciation . . . . . . . . . . . . . .	$57q Fuel . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .	$21q Maintenance . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .       $670 + $13q Ground facility expenses . . . . . . . . . . .     $1,640 + $4q Administration. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .      $4,210 + $1q

 

Required:

1.       Should the owner feel frustrated with the variance reports? Explain.

2.       Prepare a flexible budget performance report for the school for August.

3.       Evaluate the school’s performance for August.
