    Flying is generally 2 kinds

    VFR: Visual Flight Rules

    IFR: Instrument Flight Rules

    Your question pertains to the second kind, were a pilot flies an airplane based on indications read from instruments. Some instruments are self contained and give indications purely from equipment on the airplane with no external inputs (ground based or satellite based), and other instruments use inputs from ground based or satellite based equipment.

    the combination of instruments in an airplane guides a pilot (or auto pilot) to fly, and even land with zero outside reference.

    Although all commercial airplanes have the necessary equipment to fly in IFR conditions, not all airplanes nor all airports have the equipment to land 100% based on indicators. Please see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Autoland for more information.
