Rebekah Gambrell’s grandfather, Harley Steiner, gave Rebekah her first airplane ride when she was in grade school. The ride departed from and landed at the Bluffton Airport.

That ride helped Gambrell, 37, of Bluffton become interested in aviation. When she was in ninth grade she took a trip to Spain and she was hooked.

“I got into aviation because I wanted to fly, not because of electronics,” she said. But the electronics aspect of flying took over and today Gambrell intends to launch Glideslope Aviation, LLC. It will be housed at the Bluffton Flying Service, where she took her first-ever airplane ride.
