Air Force releases staff sergeant/18E5 promotion cycle statistics

JOINT BASE SAN ANTONIO-RANDOLPH, Texas (AFNS) -- The Air Force has selected 15,669 senior airmen for promotion to staff sergeant out of 30,651 eligible for a selection rate of 51.12 percent in the 18E5 promotion cycle.
The 18E5/staff sergeant promotion rate is an increase from previous years because of the requirements to provide capabilities for a growing force.

Of the 15,669 selected, 11.7 percent had “Promote Now” recommendations, 29.7 percent had “Must Promote” recommendations and 58.5 percent had “Promote” recommendations.

Selectees’ average time in grade was 1.90 years and time in service was 4.37 years. The average selectee overall score was 343.48, based on point averages of 209.67 for enlisted performance reports, 0.71 for decorations, 66.24 for the promotion fitness examination and 66.07 for the specialty knowledge test.

The staff sergeant promotion list is available on the Enlisted Promotions page of the Air Force’s Personnel Center website, the Air Force Portal and myPers. Airmen can access their score notices on the virtual Military Personnel Flight via the Air Force’s Personnel Center secure applications page.

Those selected will be promoted beginning Sept. 1 according to their promotion sequence number. Prior to posting the list on myPers, the Air Force’s Personnel Center provided commanders, senior raters and trusted agents with advanced knowledge of their Airmen’s selection with the intention that selects be notified no earlier than one day before the public release.
