Born of Necessity
We began in 2015, when founder Kelvin Boyette recognized an overlooked and underserved segment in the aerospace industry: seating refurbishment. He envisioned a unique business built upon attention to detail and flexible service options to fill that market void. Latitude has established and grown its market share year over year due to Kelvin's daily leadership and the long-term vision, support, and guidance from its board of directors.
Experience + Expertise
We provide a focused set of services synonymous with the same quality and integrity of our founders. Our employees also strive for growth every day and have a positive impact on our industry, our customers, and our communities. Collectively we provide a world-renowned customer experience that has firmly established our position as the market leader and subject matter expert in the refurbished seating industry.
Latitude is an award-winning FAA and EASA Part 145 Repair Station that since 2015 has delivered over 70,000 seats with 100% on-time performance and quality acceptance. We have over 25,000 seating part numbers on our capabilities list, and we continue to add new capabilities every month.
