Can the noise canceling feature be used without music? Will they cancel the sound of airplane engine noise?

Yes and yes
Active noise cancelation does exactly both of those things with the added benefit of being on a call or listening to music.
When no music is playing though naturally you’ll notice more sound due to the lack of music/audio
Think of it like when you sound proof a car. The more sound you block out the more sounds you tend to notice, this is why people notice a improvement in sound quality, it was always there it’s just more noticeable now

Active Noise Cancellation can be used without playing any sound to AirPods Pro. They should cancel airplane sounds pretty reliably.

Very much so. I recently used them on a flight without connecting them to my phone and throughout the whole flight I enjoyed a very peaceful flight. Just place them in your ears and they instantly cancel out the background noise without you asking them to do so. I would say they are as good if not better than my Bose Quietcomfort 25s and they are in a much smaller package.

They will not cancel out the noises completely, however since it is a constant background noise, it should deem fairly well against it.
