Abstract—This research has developed a high sensitivity of the airflow sensor in detecting the changes in the environment where the custom calibration tool is required to proceed on the testing stage. This paper investigates the correlation of airflow velocity (v) and the angle of the flap sensor (ᵒ) created by the airflow sensor. In order to verify the correlation, a tool (jig) to hold the air sensor in the wind tunnel was developed to validate the result. The findings show that the re-design process has been done to the jig to sustain the air sensor position for the high speed region. A few parameters have been prioritized to eliminate the possibility of producing a less accurate result. 

Index Terms—air sensor, jig, calibration, flap sensor
