That would work, but I think it would take quite a while unless you don't mind traveling a few thousand MPH.
Let's say the ship is in synchronus orbit over the area and tractors a person to orbit. That's 29,000 miles to travel! I hope the spacesuit has a pee tube!
I hate to picky put that's not correct. It's actually ~36 000km (22 000 miles) from the surface of the Earth. The 29 000miles ( 42 000km) is from the centre of the Earth.
Also the height of the geosynchronous orbit would vary from planet to planet.
So it could be, oh, say, 29,000 miles for another planet.
