Air Force officials have selected 4,040 technical sergeants for promotion to master sergeant, out of 27,296 eligible, for a selection rate of 14.8% percent in the 22E7 promotion cycle, which includes supplemental promotion opportunities. 

Due to the recent enlisted grade structure revision conducted by the Department of the Air Force, there has been a one-half percent decrease in master sergeant authorizations leading to a decrease in overall promotion allocations. Additionally, the 22E7 cycle also saw an increase in the number of eligible Technical Sergeants by 2,575 from the previous year, due to high retention rates across the Air Force. Both of these factors contributed to a lower E7 promotion rate.

The master sergeant promotion list will be available on the Air Force’s Personnel Center website Enlisted Promotions page, the Air Force Portal and myPers May 31, 2022 at 8 a.m. CDT. Members will also be able to access their score notices on the virtual Military Personnel Flight application via the AFPC Secure page.
