This is just a firing of the engines I believe.
I think you're misusing that word. A space flight and/or specifically SpaceX enthusiast would recognize the terminology instantly.
Assuming you mean something like "amateur" or "layman", thinking anything without the word "launch" in it is in fact a launch still seems a remarkable leap of illogic.
Would have prevented some confusion. The good news is that the test appears to have gone as planned so they are still on track for the May 7th launch.
Might not be long now?
