    I think there is a comment in Ms. Marvel #5 her ability to fly was all costume. So maybe that second exposure also (eventually?) gave her the actual ability of flight.

Yes. I recently bought the Epic Collection TPB.

The 2nd exposure gave her the power of flight.

She wished to have her powers' costume and it is exactly what happened.

Nota Bene : there are a lot of plot holes in the first stories.

She wondered where the costume came from and where it was going when he disappeared, for example.

She had more than the powers of Mar-Vell. She also had his combat skills. For example, she seemed to remember Kree training sessions.

Also, she had an unexplained immunity against the effects of the Cavourite Crystals (contrary to both Grotesk & Super-Skrull who were teleported to "warp-space").

Her powers were explained as a result of her Kree-Human hybrid biology only in her very first appearances. Very quickly, her powers seemed to increase as the stories progressed.

    Hmm...maybe she got the seventh sense from the 2nd exposure to the psyche magnitron?

No, I don't think so.
The "danger sense" was probably given to her by Gerry Conway (and not Chris Claremont) because he planned to make her a protagonist of the "Spider-Verse" : She works for Jameson, she encounters Scorpion, she becomes friend with MJ ... Everything is done to make Spidey fans read the book. So, even though she is no Spider-Woman, she gets to have a danger sense (contrary to Jessica Drew who doesn't have one, lol !).
When Chris Claremont becomes the writer, he changes the focus of the book, even though Jameson stays as one of the protagonists.
In the beginning, the "danger sense" is only explained as the warrior instinct of a Kree soldier.
Of course, it is not a viable explanation since we already met multiple Kree people who didn't seem to have it.

One explanation would be that the Psyche-Magnitron has given her powers than neither the Kree nor Earthlings have.
