The significant client for the Xingu I was the French military, with an aggregate request for 41 (for aircrew preparing and contact obligations for the flying corps and war fleet), which represented very nearly a large portion of all Emb121 creation.

This presented all the more capable motors, four sharpened steel props, expanded fuel tankage and more noteworthy seating limit civility of a somewhat extended fuselage. Comparable in size, powerplant and execution to the Raytheon Beech King Air B200, the Xingu II made its first flight on September 4 1981.
