The list of more than 13,400 senior airmen who have been chosen to pin on a stripe to staff sergeant was released Thursday morning by the Air Force. Those picked represent just more than 40 percent of those eligible 33,060.

Staff sergeant is the first noncommissioned officer rank. Those selected will be promoted beginning in September, depending on their promotion sequence numbers, according to a news release from the Air Force Personnel Center.

Selections are tentative until the data verification process is complete, which is no later than 10 days after the promotion release date.

AFPC said the average score for those selected was 283.30, with an average time in grade of 1.93 years and time in service of 4.45 years. Weighted factor point averages were 131.59 for enlisted performance reports, .98 for decorations, 70.35 for the Promotion Fitness Exam and 57.33 for the Specialty Knowledge Test.

This year's promotion rate of 40.7 percent represents a 2 percentage point decline from a year ago, when it stood at 42.7 percent. The rate has been dropping since 2009, when nearly half the E-5 candidates made staff sergeant.
