WASHINGTON (NNS) -- More than 26,000 active duty and nearly 600 Full Time Support (FTS) Sailors are on their way to advancement to E4, E5 and E6 with the release of the fall Petty Officer advancement list Nov. 20.

"Advancements are critical to our overall strategy for managing rating and paygrade levels to ensure healthy community management and manning the Fleet to the correct level with the right people," said Rear Adm. Tony Kurta, director of Military Personnel Plans and Policy. "Sailors advanced in cycle 216 for Active Duty and Full Time Support (FTS) E4-E6 will provide the Fleet with the right Sailor with the right skills and the right experience level to maximize Navy's readiness."

While the number of active duty Sailors advancing to E5 and E4 decreased this cycle, the opportunity to advance increased because there were fewer Sailors in the advancement window.

Enlisted advancements are based on vacancies in the fleet. Although there were fewer vacancies to advance into this cycle, there were also fewer Sailors in the advancement window-so percent opportunity stayed high.

Advancement opportunity for active duty E6 Sailors this cycle increased to 19.59 from 16.18 percent last cycle, while E5 Sailors saw opportunity rise to 32.42 percent this cycle compared to 30.94 percent last spring. Sailors advancing to E4 had opportunity increase to 47.70 percent from 45.83 percent last cycle.

FTS E6 Sailors opportunity this cycle increased to 11.60 percent from 10.78 from last cycle, while E5 Sailors opportunity dropped to 23.58 percent from 28.57 last cycle. E4 Sailors also saw a drop in opportunity from 59.52 in the last cycle to 42.21 this cycle.
