Correct. A lot of companies 'ordered' those Nikola electric trucks too.

The good news is without an engine this airplane is 100% certain to meet the noise requirements. I'm not sure about range and speed though.

Not sure why they didn't design them with warp speed engines instead. Just as high a chance of flying by 2029.
