That might work. SpaceX can tow it up to LEO then it can glide on in. Might cause a few traffic issues at big airports though.

Put whatever the Millenium Falcon has on the Boom. Actually, if it can be “glider towed” up to a fast enough speed they can just use ramjet/scramjet engines, they are pretty simple, proven design.
