Air Force selects 9,706 in staff sergeant promotion cycle; list posts Aug. 25

  • Air Force Personnel Center Public Affairs

Air Force officials have selected 9,706 senior airmen for promotion to staff sergeant, out of 45,991 eligible, for a selection rate of 21.1 percent in the 22E5 promotion cycle, which includes supplemental promotion opportunities.

This promotion cycle selection rate was impacted by enlisted grade restructuring, a leveling-off of end-strength growth, and high retention levels. The 22E5 cycle also implements the Promotion Recommendation Score, which places value on the experience of Airmen and sustained superior performance. These changes are part of long-term efforts to increase experience levels within the noncommissioned officer corps.

The staff sergeant promotion list will be available on the Air Force’s Personnel Center website Enlisted Promotions page, the Air Force Portal and myPers August 25, 2022 at 8 a.m. CDT. Members will also be able to access their score notices on the virtual Military Personnel Flight via the AFPC Secure page.
