You don't, flash is not supported on the iPad - and as Adobe have announced that they are stopping development on all mobile versions of it, it probably never will be.
Browser apps such as Skyfire, iSwifter, Puffin and Photon 'work' on some sites, but judging by their reviews not all sites. Also some websites, especially news sites, have their own apps in the App Store.
If you do a search on this forum you will find hundreds of other threads on the subject.

You can't. Look at the box on the right >>>>>> More like this. Read a couple of those discussions.
There are a few browsers that have some Flash capability, Photn, iSwifter, SkyFire, .... Check them out in the app store and read the reviews very carefully before you buy one.

Which sites do you exactly want to visit? I can quickly test them out for Flash compliance with the Flash emulators listed above so that you don't end up having to pay for AppStore apps just to be able to test them.

Thanks for the link! I wish the article had some kind of benchmarks or at least some real-world compatibility info like the one at http://www.iphonelife.com/blog/87/how-you-will-want-watch-flash-only-videos-and- use-dynamic-flash-content (see the latest updates at the bottom). Unfortunately, it doesn't even mention Skyfire is no longer compatible with a lot of online videos and isn't in any way recommended when there're much better choices (iSwifter and Puffin being the two best.)

google chrome mobile browser is baking flash into the browser for android and windows on arm thus removing the need for the plugin, hopefully apple will allow the browser soon, as i rarely use my ipad for web browsing and instead use my sons android tab or my android phone because of this flash issue.
i have tried all of these workarounds, and either you have to be on wifi or the site is unsupported.
even when they do work the quality is horrid, i have spent easily $100 on these workarounds and numerous apps.
my sons android tab and my phone both run flash as well as my desktop pc does, none of these workarounds come anywhere close.

I guess it is a matter of "to each his own". I've been using an iPad as my primary computing device (except work), for over two years and have never missed flash.
To more directly answer your question, it's hard to say. The Flash VM can already be included (and in some cases is) as part of an app, but appears to be limited to a specific source address, such as a single website domain or feed source. I'm not certain what the specific app design limitation are, but it would seem that if it could be included for general web consumption, someone would have already done it. Got to be easier to code than a streaming conversion.

To each their own, we all do different things on the web.
But if you think Flash is dead or dying you might want to check out this link.

That's nice, but that hardly means anything. I'm a headhunter for Information Technology. In the last two years, we've had virtually no clients willing to pay us a fee for a Flash developer. But, on a daily basis we get requests from clients who are willing to pay a fee for iOS, Android, PHP, CSS, HTML5 developers, just to name a few of what's really going on in mobile and web development. Yes, flash still exists, but it is quickly being replaced with more stable, less memory hogging software.
There was a time when Cobol was a hot language. It's certainly not hot anymore. Face it. Technology moves forward and Flash isn't where it's headed. It's where it was.

And yet the most common asked for feature is adobe flash.
just compare the posts on this forum alone, can you find a more asked for feature?
You guys been claiming the death of flash since 2007. Yet today Google and Microsoft both are baking it into their browser.
This site was created less than a year ago, http://www.pottermore.com/ by one of the wealthiest people on the planet, and it uses Flash, what is your excuse for them not using something else? Is she stupid? can't afford it? I'd say it's because it's the best platform for the job.
You will also need Adobe® Flash Player 10+ if you want to experience everything that Pottermore has to offer.
