I've had some luck with using a second object. For instance, If I have an aircraft carrier to land on, I might create a half cylinder, align its flat side to the carrier deck and set it's vehicle to the carrier. Then, since the half cylinder is upside down, check if whatever is landing is below the half cylinder ( that is the same as above the carrier's flight deck.)
Its not elegant but it works.
