Space Time Travel

Is It Feasible to Hover in the Atmosphere, Wait for the Earth to Rotate, and Then Land Somewhere Instead of Flying There?

You are coupled to the reference frame of the Earth. While on the surface your velocity relative to the Earth is zero. If you start to levitate above the ground you are still attached to the reference frame of the Earth and will hover over the same spot on the ground.
