Adobe Flash ok on iPad to watch movie on plane?

Hopefully this is the right forum to ask this. I have iOS7 on my 4s and will be flying and can watch movies on their wifi but need Adobe Flash. Is it ok to use on my phone? I am running iOS6 on my iPad3 so maybe that is the better choice for Adobe Flash and the movie? Watching movies on my iPad is definitely preferred for the screen size but not sure if its possible.

You can not watch Flash videos on iOS devices. You would need to download the movies you want to watch straight to the memory of your device to watch it on the plane.

iDevices don't do flash.

Instead, just sync yourself some things to watch on the flight from iTunes... I keep a couple movies, some Warner Bros. cartoons and the latest episodes of NCIS & NCIS-LA on my iPad for those occasions when I need to kill some time and have my iPad around.
