I am asking this question from the perspective of flash sponsor. I tried to make a game long time ago and soon I realized that it's a hard work which requires a lot of skills and patience. Yet I am not sure about the income. I have seen pretty good games sell for about 200 - 300 dollars, and yet I guess that such game takes at least 2 weeks to finish - if you're good, right?

Flash is slowly being phased out with HTML 5. You are probably better off learning HTML 5 and creating your game in that instead. There is going to be a much bigger market for HTML5 in the near future too as its still a new technology and being implemented currently.

It depends on the business model.
If you're going to get a sponsor or use ads, no.
If you're going to release it as a standalone on a big platform like Steam it can work great, but you need a high quality product.

You can look at games like Super Meat Boy and Binding of Isaac, they are both Flash, they're sold on big platforms, and they made a lot of money.

Try haxe + openfl and eventually deploy as flash, html5, windows, ios, android... etc.
Skill and tools on developing flash may be reused on haxe, eg. a handful flash game framework has been ported to haxe.

That is, one can use flash skill to develop html5 game.
