Flash is an amazing tool but for the purposes of navigation and general site building it should be avoided. Remember however, youtube is built using flash for display purposes, which is an area where Flash really shines!

Some problems with Flash for basic website functions
The Flash player: People have to download the Flash player in advance before they can view Flash movies, so by using Flash - your visitor range will decrease considerably because not everyone will be willing to download the Flash player just to view your site! You'll also have to put in additional work in redirecting the user to the Flash download page if he or she doesn't have the player installed.

Apple / iOS Apple and Flash don't play well together. Try to visit a site that uses flash with your Iphone or Ipad and you'll soon be frustrated. Simply put you can't use Flash on a stock iOS device. Are you willing to ignore all of your customers that own Apple products?

Site optimization: If your content was presented in Flash, most search engines wouldn't be able to index your content. Hence, you will not be able to rank well in search engines and there will be less traffic heading to your site!

Loading time: Users have to wait longer than usual to load Flash content compared to regular text and images, and some visitors might just lose their patience and click the Back button. The longer your Flash takes to load, the more you risk losing visitors.
