Great job with the CJ3 - it's an awesome airplane from what I hear. Very capable with a fantastic flight deck set-up with the ProLine 21 (arguably better than the Primus Epic in the Sovereign). Plus, you'll fly shorter flights in the CJ3 (although they can fly longer flights with its range) and avoid "flat a$$" with 5+ hour flights.

Here are some good pictures of the CJ2/CJ3 (same Pro Line 21 cockpit):

You can also track where the CJ3s and the rest of the fleet fly and layover. Look for C25Bs (CJ3s):

The CJ3 cockpit certainly is tighter than the A318/319 but the Sovereign is not much wider (and you spend more time in the Sovereign cockpit on longer flights). It should be fun to fly with great performance. Have fun!
