The cheapest form of antigravity is the thrust of a rocket. Even
an "antigravity" field would "effectively" exert a thrust. An
antigravity field which allowed an object to escape the earth's
field and penetrate into non-orbital space, would counteract the
object's weight and the local field to the same extent as a
rocket battles against it.

I suspect that an antigravity vehicle would have to appear to be
travelling at escape velocity, or it would not escape.
