Is time acceleration allowed?

I did a bit of search here for time acceleration but only found about pros and cons. Some pilots agreed while others didn’t. Is that allowed in Vatsim or should I disconnect and connect when I am back at normal speeds? I haven’t found any literature around this.

That’s regulated in the Code of Conduct:

  • B9 A pilot operating their simulator using acceleration/deceleration functions must continuously monitor their connection, and ensure that they do not cause disruptions to other account holders. If operating in actively controlled airspace, the pilot must have the express permission of the controller to operate using time acceleration/deceleration, and if a controller requests a pilot to return to ‘normal simulation rate’, the pilot shall immediately comply.
