If you asking if you can transfer files from the iPad to a flash drive by connecting the drive to the iPad and dragging the files onto the drive, no - you can't do that. You can transfer files to your computer in a number of different ways from the iPad and then plug the flash drive into the computer and save the files from the computer to the flash drive.
BTW ... Exactly what type of "data" do you want to transfer?

Yes, what I usually do is sync my iPad to my Macbook once a week, then all the info is on my computer. But I do need to know how to transfer the data from the computer to the flash drive (32Gig). I don't ordinarily even see the folder the iPad stuff resides in unless I'm syncing.

Apps, Music, Books, TV Shows, Movies would reside within your iTunes folder. Photos would be connected to whatever editing/management program you use (i.e. iPhoto for Mac) or Pictures folder.
What is it you are trying to transfer? It may be best to include all this in a full computer backup

To be honest, I have my Macbook backed up with a back-up drive.
Can I just get on the Flash drive what I want on it, I don't want ALL my Macbook iPhoto pictures or iTunes music on it. I just want whatever is on my iPad, which I back up to my Macbook. So would the iTunes folder just transfer whatever is on my iPad over to the Flash drive?

Your iTunes folder would contain your full iTunes library, not just what is synced. If you already have your Mac backed up all of this would be contained within that, plus your data would be contained in your iPad backup on your computer (and/or icloud if you choose to do that) You are also able to reload past purchases. What is it what you are trying to accomplish?

If you really want to copy the iPad backup folder to a flash drive, this is where you can find it on a Mac.
iTunes places the backup files in the following places:
- Mac:~/Library/Application Support/MobileSync/
