It all depends on his/her experience and expertise. And instruments are needed for precision.

Everyone can see through glass to a great distance, so pilot too can see. However, at high speed that plane moves, he needs instruments to not only see clouds, but know other atmospheric conditions like air pockets, which give good jolts sometimes.
