This document announces two fact-finding informal airspace meetings to solicit information from airspace users, and others, concerning a proposal to modify the Class B airspace area at the Lambert-St. Louis International Airport terminal area, St. Louis, Missouri.

All comments received during these meetings will be considered prior to any issuance of a notice of proposed rulemaking.
