Had an aircraft go tech on a rig, one passenger being the master of a jack up that was due to be moved. Company wanted a second aircraft to land on the rig to pick up the master so the jack up could move as it was costing mega bucks while sitting idle. Our manual allowed a second aircraft to land on a rig but only to drop an engineer to fix the broken aircraft and was not allowed to be carrying any other passengers. Much agrivation from management about money up the spout but pilot merely asked for signed approval from the CEO to carry out the requested task, guess what, no one was willing to put it up to the CEO.
