LESS than six months af­ter fin­ish­ing high school, a Yanchep teenager has launched his own busi­ness, Air Wings Watches.

Ishaan Bha­tia (18) said his pas­sion for watches and avi­a­tion in­spired him to cre­ate the brand, with the first range re­leased in April af­ter a year of plan­ning.

“I started the busi­ness when I was in Year 12 dur­ing school,” the for­mer Greenwood Col­lege stu­dent said.

“I have al­ways wanted to start my own busi­ness af­ter be­ing in­spired by my grand­fa­ther and fa­ther.

“Af­ter a year of plan­ning, de­sign­ing and con­sis­tent ne­go­ti­a­tion whilst bat­tling my fi­nal ex­ams, Air Wings el­e­ment range was re­leased.

“Pi­lot watches have al­ways been a love of mine since I started fly­ing at the age of 14.”

“Air Wings Aus­tralia was reg­is­tered on my 18th birth­day.”

Mr Bha­tia said he did the avi­a­tion pro­gram at Greenwood Col­lege and had flown sev­eral air­craft around WA.

Since fin­ish­ing school, he has worked full­time to fund the busi­ness ven­ture.

The watches, which have leather straps and stain­less steel straps, are made in Hong Kong.
