In March 2010, Orbx announced its release of Bill Womack's Stark's Twin Oaks Airport scenery add-on.

Stark’s Twin Oaks is a small family run rural airfield located on the outskirts of Portland, Oregon. Initially a dairy farm, it was discovered by Bob Stark who noticed its potential as an airport. After a lot of improvements on the land, the runway was built and hangars added. Over the years, the airport has been further developed and more workshops and aircraft shelters were added.

Situated in the rolling farmland of Willamette Valley near Portland, Oregon, Stark's Twin Oaks Airpark is perfectly located for sightseeing in the Pacific Northwest. The airport’s rural location offers a tranquil atmosphere and less traffic. It also provides easy connection points for flights to either the rugged peaks of the Cascade range to the east, or the coast to the west.

This scenery add-on comprises of a large area of 30cm/pixel aerial photoreal terrain which features the various Alpaca ranches, orchards and small farms in the area. Also featured in the add-on is a place of particular interest in the area, namely the massive Glacier rock quarry, which is located a few miles to the southeast of the airport.

This add-on also offers what is probably a first for a FS airport: multiple elevations. Twin Oaks Airport is carved from the side of a gentle slope. Consequently, the Starks' house, garage, and two of the hangars are on a hill which overlooks the rest of the airport field.

The lead developer of this add-on, Bill Womack, has researched and photographed the airport over the last few years. Owners Bob and Betty Stark have also provided their support.

This add-on is considered to be the ultimate simulation rendition of one of Stark's Twin Oaks Airport. The scenery add-on is very detailed and the surrounding terrain is also included.

Many reviews about this add-on seem to have one common sentiment: the add-on is popular, and the multi-elevation is very impressive and the detailing of the airport is amazing.
