No, this is not supported.

The best way to do this is access the files wirelessly.  You can do this through a computer, or there are certain USB drives that create a WiFi network that an iPad can access, such as this one: http://smile.amazon.com/SanDisk-Wireless-Smartphones-Tablets-SDWS2-032G-E57/dp/B00DBX371C

But there is no way to connect a current flash drive that you have to the iPad directly.
