In order to fly through clouds a pilot has to be instrument rated and airplane properly instrument equipped and tested up to date. To fly through clouds, pilot would NOT use outside visual references to fly the airplane as the horizon is nonexistant. In fact looking out the window would only confuse the pilot. Pilot will look at the airplane instruments to determine whether his attitude (pitch) is fine and whether his wings are level.
