Somehow, that wouldn't surprise me
And I'd think impulse would work the same whether it was atmosphere or deep space
It's designed to move the ship forward/backward/whatever direction after all, no special tricks required (unlike warp drive)
We've never seen that intricate of a anti-gravity system in any Trek. (Closest we've seen was the room for Melora Pazlar in DS9 and that was tiny.) But nothing on the size and scale of a starship.
It probably would work just fine... but I dont know if theres some technobabble reason why it cant, as the only form of propulsion we saw used when a starship landed was thrusters when Voyager landed.
