Air Force leaders have been focusing on the service's requirement for growing and developing enough field-grade officers to meet mission demands. At 92 percent, the Air Force is currently undermanned in Line of the Air Force field-grade officers, with non-rated field-grade officers manned at 74 percent. As such, beginning December 2017, the pool of line officers considered for promotion to major will have a 100 percent promotion opportunity. Promotion Recommendation Forms will only be required for officers who receive a 'Promote' recommendation and have derogatory information or a 'Do Not Promote' recommendation.
