comment “downtime” vs. “time off” vs. “free time” vs. “spare time” in AmEng vernacular
Yes, you can use downtime this way. It does carry a connotation that the time is a little harder to predict than something like time off but the difference is subtle. Your phrasing would be considered normal AmEng by native speakers.
