Things may have changed, or maybe I'm too daft to remember, but yeah, Staff Seargent (E-5) is NCO, E-4 is in the Airman ranks. And the AF is MUCH slower in making rank than the other services. Making E-5 in 2y9m is exceptional in any branch, but pretty much impossible in the AF through normal processes.
The AF is very slow at giving rank. I will actually sow on my stripe in November / December time frame. It took me 5 years to get it with the average being 7, which I don't think is too bad.

I have never heard of a 3 year Staff.

Congrats! It really sounds like you are doing something you enjoy. I think that'* much better than pay in any situation.

5 years is really quite impressive to get E-5 in the AF, you should high 5 yourself. I did it in just under 4 - it took a BTZ to SRA and I got very lucky on the test and scored pretty high. The cards just happened to be dealt right for me. You did exceptional to nail it within 5 years!!!

I think it means more work...
but also more money, and more people you're allowed to yell at...
